Dry River Estate Viognier 2009

The light straw colour seems to be almost in contrast with the exotic perfume, fresh apricot and guava as well as that touch of talc on the nose. A long palate with an oily texture is nicely balanced by a Muscatlike finish. Overtly mineral flavours are lifted with fresh apricot, white peach and a whisker of lime. Most but not all commentators consider Viognier to be a variety to drink young but we have observed the emergence of rose petal flavours and a more opulent expression within the first 2-3 years for our previous vintages. The jury is still out as to recommending the best time for drinking.
