A zippy, fresh dry style of viognier, the 2016 Warramunda Estate Viognier displays texture, tension and a striking minerality.
It has a slaty, steely acid, engaging aromas of red rose, old spice, ginger blossom and quince. The palate reveals scented musk, thyme, chamomile lemon curd and brioche.
The wine continues to change in the glass, in the bottle and it will cellar over time to produce more weight and richness on the palate.
Partner this with spicy Thai or Vietnamese food, baked lemon and herb whole fish or white poultry like chicken or turkey.
This is a wine which over delivers in flavour and with only 150 cases produced, it won’t be available for long.
After successive vintages where we have experimented with winemaking techniques to find the best expression of Warramunda Estate viognier in bottle, we believe to have now found the perfect formula.
Fermented with indigenous yeast in older French oak barrels, there is no residual sugar making this is a savoury, dry wine and a real joy to drink.Variety: Viognier Clone: Condrieu Year Planted: 2000
