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.
