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.

Just when I thought I’d fallen out of love with white wine, I found this. This is answer to Chardonnay since I’d become largely uninterested. Aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine and peach drew me in. It’s full body and creaminess got me to stay. This is the closest I’ve gotten so far to a white BBW. Reasonably priced. I’m looking to forward to having this again and again. Shout out to the screw top. #badandboozypod #whitewines #winegasm

Pleasant tartness, apricot and tropical fruits, hint of ginger. Nice mouthfeel. Would buy again.

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.

A very sharp and refreshing Viognier from South Australia! An intense bite of tropical fruits and a hint of butter. Great alcohol content and very dry just the way I like it! This wine is perfect for a sunny day!
