Tasting Notes / Comments:Orange blossom, peach and pear aromas mix with hints of gingerbread and spice on the nose. The palate is fat and rich, with a silky texture and wonderfully fresh flavours.
Oddbins (2001 vintage)

Pale in colour with a candid honeysuckle aroma. But then that's what you'd expect with Viognier. Soft, rounded palate with a touch of sweetness and some acidity. Delicate flavours of peach and apricot. Quite light really so an `aperitif` style of wine. Not hugely exciting but good drinking.
Andrew Barrow (2001 vintage)

Strong nose with honey aromas and a very slight burnt smell. A medium straw colour. A light delicate taste, some felt weak on the palate. Some slight fruitiness to the taste but generally a weak structure. It exhibits some length.
