Signature apricot blossom, lifted white flowers of honeysuckle and a little musk stick aroma. Fresh apricots deliver oodles of weight and flavour with a white nectarine punch, hints of lemon citrus bring an acid twist to drive the back palate and keep the weight in check. A chalky texture and some oak tannin from barrel maturation carrying the flavour to a long lingering finish.
95 Point Rated - Jane Faulkner Halliday Wine Companion
Just 2 barrels. A labour of love. It is not easy to maintain varietal purity for viognier without it turning broad and oily. None of that here. It's almost delicate, with just a smidge of apricot and kernels. Infused with lemon, orange and woodsy spices, it's textural, but light as a feather across the palate. Bravo.
93 Point Rated - Aaron Brasher The Real Review
Exotic aromas of arum lillies, apricot kernel, vanilla, spice and melon skin. The flavours are fine and focussed, real restraint and elegance for viognier. There's a white-peachy fleshiness to it as well as a minerality and defining acid line that really shapes the wine and gives it cut, structure and presence. This will really blossom with some time in the cellar. Sophisticated and really complex
Tiny yields, this fruit is hand harvested lovingly by only Yarra Yering staff, into the cool room overnight and then whole bunch pressed. Any juice not pressed from the skins is then frozen to be used in the Dry Red Wine No. 2 ferment weeks later. The Viognier juice is run off to oak barrels without any clarification for primary fermentation. Largely left alone until bottling after 10 months. Only two barrels are produced.
