Viognier is a french grape variety. It’s rich in stone fruit characters and can be highly aromatic. It is a very versatile wine, and can be paired with white meat, seafood and with even lamb.
SubRosa winemaker Adam Louder:
Viognier is a great white variety for red wine wine drinkers. It’s more full-bodied and has complexity that evolves over time.
Viognier is best served at just below room temperature (11-13C). If it’s too cold, the texture, flavour, acid balance and aromas will be masked.
SubRosa first produced Viognier in 2015 sourcing grapes from the Pyrenees Wine region, Victoria, Australia. In 2017 SubRosa began producing Viognier from the Grampians Wine Region in Victoria, Australia.
SubRosa Viognier is handpicked and naturally fermented and matured in French oak.
Leading independent wine writer Huon Hooke has rated the 2018 SubRosa Grampians Viognier #1 in Australia. He awarded the wine 94 points along with Top Value and Top Rank for The Real Review in April 2020.
Huon Hooke, The Real Review, April 2020:
Medium yellow, bright colour, with a complex and expressive aroma of spiced honey and poached stone-fruits, the oak component evident in the spiciness of the palate as well. There is richness and body, texture and fruit, but also delicacy and refinement. The varietal character is well in evidence but not overpowering. A superb viognier, the finish long and elegant.
