This rare varietal was first planted at Tahbilk in the 1990s, with releases to date decidedly fruit-forward in style.
The 2015 Viognier is no exception to the rule! Aromas of ginger, rose petals and citrus blossom; the palate is softly textured with an apricot, stone-fruit intensity, honeysuckle notes and a long fragrant finish.
Don’t look for long-term cellaring here, we consider this Viognier best in its joyful expression of youthful exuberance.
The unique thing about Viognier is that, when it is made right, as this one is, it smells of the ripest peaches, apricots and honeysuckle – almost sweet and certainly rich, and then on the palate it is round and soft, yet savoury and textural, enjoy with a perfect free-range roast chicken, turkey and ham.
