Tasting Notes / Comments:Clear pale lemon-lime in colour, fresh to look at and slightly viscous in the glass. It smelled like a classic Viognier – honey, aromatic and wild flowers and a comforting mustiness – ‘a smell to lie in’ as one taster remarked. The taste was strong in acidity, fresh, apples, slightly lemony, unripe apricots. The acidity stays in the mouth for a while but the fruits quickly die
'Enjoying Viognier' (2002 vintage)

This is a hugely concentrated example of viognier, yields were very low around 20hl per hectare for the 1998 vintage. It exhibits all sorts of flavours like pineapple, tropical fruits and lemon. Strong, assertive and utterly delicious.
