The weather during the growing season consisted of a late winter break. Favourable winter and spring rains fell, filling up the soil profiles with water and placing the vines in excellent health with strong canopies and a balanced fruit-set. The summer was dry and pest and disease pressures were low. January was quite hot, and for the earlier regions this brought ripening forward to a couple of weeks earlier than normal. February was then mild with cool nights, allowing the vines to ripen the grapes quickly while retaining good natural acidity.
The aroma is intense with white flowers -particularly honeysuckle and apricot nectar. The palate is rich and long, with citrus and tropical fruit flavours. This wine exhibits the typical Viognier texture - silky, rich and luscious with a lovely fresh finish.
