|Tasting Notes / Comments:||With limes and sherbet aromas emanating from the glass this doesn't really scream Viognier initially. But after a moment a honeysuckle complexity emerges giving a touch of the exotic. There is a richness to the palate and plenty of ripe peaches to smother the tongue. With food a delicious silky texture is revealed.|

Straw coloured with a greenish tinge. Some initial fruit on the nose but grab it while you can because it soon disappears. Oakiness and acid to the taste but fruit is weak. Not a well balanced wine with an acid, slightly sour after taste.
'Enjoying Viognier' (2000 vintage)
Viognier, the elusive holy grail of white grapes, is appearing in more and more unexpected pockets of the world - but not everyone can convert its potential providence into something delicious. Here`s an excellent, unpretentious example.
Highly aromatic with white flowers, minerals, peaches and violets. The palate is full and rich with a super-clean finish.
