The ‘Y Series’ Viognier has all the classic hallmarks of the variety along with some characters from being fermented with wild yeast. Ripe, lush apricot tart with some spiced pastry crust is served up with some grapefruit and white flowers aromas. It is a richly perfume nose, attractive and evocative.
A delicious whiff of white pepper becomes more apparent with the first mouthful and lingers with the fresh apricot on the finish. This viognier is fuller in body, as you might expect, and is kept fresh with some crisp, sometimes crunchy, acid. There is plenty enough interest in the glass to make it a worthy drink with or without food, whatever the season.
