2015 Decanter Commended
An Unoaked blend of 90% Viognier & 10% Chardonnay.
Bright; light gold in colour with greeny reflexes. Lovely peachy apricot nose with hint of jasmine and acacia flowers. ‘Oily’ or ‘petrol’ character may also be present – typical of Viognier – but does not detract from wine. Clean and fresh palate with decent level of acidity. More ripe peach and stone fruit, and touch of white pepperiness also discernible. Medium bodied with good rounded mouthfeel and almost honeyed texture.
Drink within next year or so.
