Reviews and Ratings

Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Apple, peach and floral aromas with peach and citrus notes on the palate. Nice acidity throughout. Would pair well with grilled shrimp. Tasted March 2018.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Aromatic, full bodied, well balanced. Jasmine floral notes with ripening cantaloupe. On the palate, nectarine, cantaloupe driven with a saline minerality. Pairs well with mango and balsamic glazed quinoa salad or a banana leaf wrapped thick white fish on jasmine rice. Tasted 2017 vintage in March 2018. 90 points
Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Very beautiful viognier made in Australia. peachy, floral with nice fruits on the palate.
Kim rated this wine as 70/100
Eamonn Donnelly reviewed this wine as follows:

Ripe tropical fruit and floral notes deliver in this South Australian Viognier. Pineapple, mango, juicy peach with bitter citrus zest - white grapefruit. Sweet floral notes of elderflower tie in nicely. Lots of acidity on the palate - the wine is dry. All the ripe, juicy fruit on the nose comes across underripe and tart on the palate.

A wine very much geared toward the expression of fruit and primary aromas.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Lovely aromic notes of jasmine blossom, cantaloupe, white peach and steely minerality. It’s light-medium bodied, fruity and approachable to those exploring beyond their dry light bodied wine boundaries. Enjoy with mango feta quinoa salad. Tasted March 2018.
