(From 2012 Vintage) Pale straw in colour, the 2012 Y Series Viognier has aromas of honeysuckle, candied ginger and glacé pineapple that typify this exotic variety. The palate is rich in texture and body thanks to wild yeast fermentation and ageing on lees, yet retains a refreshing quality that make it a pleasure to drink. Flavours to be found on the palate include fresh pineapple and lychee.
Rich stone fruits on the aromatics, mostly peaches and apricots. Full bodied, rich wine, with an almost sweet finish that does however, last. Low acidity, but not really fat, or hot. Heavy texture, bold flavour with noticeable green coloring when poured. An interesting wine, but would probably explore other viogniers instead of purchasing again.
