(2023) Sourced from six vineyards in the higher altitude Eden Valley, this was fermented and matured for 10 months in older French oak puncheons and barriques. It has an absolutely classic Viognier nose, with touches of ginger to ripe apricot and peach. Aromas verge on the exotic with fig and gentle nuttiness in the background. What a delicious wine as it's quite slippery, silky palate delivers copious confit lemon and sweeter nectarine. That plushness, with downy peach skins and hints of fig and toast, give wonderful breadth, though the finish is finely chiselled. Watch the video for more information.
(2017) This too has a quite similar wax with a bit more butter and even a hint of mint humbug, an elegant palate, perhaps slightly less intense, just a touch softer, but lovely. Price and stockist quoted at time of review is for the 2008 vintage.
(2015) Couldn't be more classic this, with lime, flowers and sherbet, a whiff of waxy paraffin, and plenty of pithy directness. No wonder fans of this style love these bone-dry and sheer, but relatively complex Rieslings. In the mouth it is energising stuff: like sucking on the tangiest grapefruit in one dimension, but then nuances of candy, bright and ripe apple and stony minerals are there too. Very long, very layered, very delicious.
