Needed to double decant this to knock off the sulfide funk. Became floral after the decant.

Tart, high acid, minerals, especially on the nose. Slight residual sugar. Oaky. Best cold. Gets astringent if it warms. Other than the heavy oak and high alcohol it drinks like a French viognier.

Unusual style for me, but I very much liked it. Tropical fruits and apricot preserves, I would have liked a touch more acidity, but overall quite nice. Full mouthfeel.

A little flinty and match stick on the nose at first. Needs 15 to 30 minutes to breath. Opens up to white flowers, honeysuckle, pear, and honey on the nose. Good weight and good balance on the palate.

I feel like inside this... Somewhere... Is a good wine, but it's buried. And by buried I mean maybe one lot that went into this was good and the others were not.

Delicious. Nice and round and bright with citrus and apple notes. Good acid too. We drank this solo. A great price made it all better.

This is the largest producer of Viognier in Australia and they also have a nursery that supplies most of the plant material to the Aussies
