100% Viognier, this spent 10 months on fine lees before bottling, which has contributed lusciousness of texture and complexity of flavour. To counterpoint this, freshness is in abundance with this lively, youthful 2016. Pale lemon-gold, aromas recall lifted, sweetly-scented apricots and white peaches. Palate is full-bodied, broad, rich and powerful; classic Viognier perfume is interwoven with delicate spice and savoury mineral nuances. The finish is elegant, tense and long-lingering (for drinking 2017-2019).
