Reviews and Ratings
|Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This straw yellow Viognier is smooth and well balanced. Aromas of jasmine blossom and lemongrass are followed by flavours of peach and ginger. These exocrine f
notes and subtle sweetness would let it pair nicely with Asian food. Tasted March 2017.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Step into this fragrant and rich Viognier from Southern Australia. Rich and integrated honeysuckle, with floral notes, wild ferment, lemongrass and ginger. Declared 13.5% ABV. Pair with sushi. Tasted March 2017. 90 points.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas and flavors of floral bouquet, honeydew melon, tropical fruit, spice and lemongrass. Fresh in flavor with a lingering crispness.
|Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Lemon and smoke on the nose. This was an interesting wine. I wouldn't drink on its own, but would pair with smoked cheese or white-sauced pasta. A great wine if you need a change up from pinot grigio.
|Dan Carkner reviewed this wine as follows:|
Smoky, caramelized apple and pear in a fresh herb marinade on the nose that is somewhat subdued. Tropical fruit notes and honey are predominant on the palate with over-ripe melon taking centre stage. A velvety texture and medium acidity combine for a pleasing mouthfeel that is smooth yet refreshing.
Grilled whitefish with a sweet, fruit salsa, and bitter arugula would hit the spot with this Aussie Viognier.
