SubRosa 2022 Grampians Viognier

Grampians, Victoria

$48

Beautiful aromas of mango and apricot with hints of honeysuckle, ginger and sweet pepper. Medium bodied and rich with nice acidity, mid-palate texture and long elegant finish.

  • Halliday Wine Companion, 95 Pts: "A rich, viscous expression of this variety and an excellent one, too. This is a powerful white wine. Grilled stone fruit and wild flings of spice meet toast, butterscotch and quartz. Length, power and dare – this wine has it all. 2023 - 2028. Special Value."

    Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 94 Pts: "Light, bright yellow hue leads into a creamy, talcy, nutty, savoury barrel-fermented style of bouquet, wheaty/mealy and quite complex. The spice/apricot fruit is a little hidden just now. In the mouth, it's intense and medium-full bodied, with richness and roundness typical of this grape. Long, resonating finish. Very good, but it could benefit from another year to tone down the oak."

Adam's Notes

My passion to craft Australian Viognier continues. Sourcing for the 2022 vintage was a small plot of vines planted in 2003. The vineyard is at the base of an old volcano, deep in a north-easterly part of the Grampians region. It was a cool spring and a mild summer, ideal conditions for a slow ripening and a low yield. Harvest happened in March and I was really pleased with the high quality of the grapes. To let the true characteristics of the Viognier shine through I naturally fermented and matured for 12 months in French oak. It was another great year and happy to share it with you. 

Nancy's Wine Pairing Notes

As soon as I tasted the 2022 my mind starting racing to pairing ideas. It was spectacular with my mum's Grilled Barramundi and Butter Parsley Sauce. Adam liked it with the Roasted Lamb Rack. I love a tropical pairing with a Viognier, so my choice was scallop ceviche with mango and avocado. For an inspiring list of pairings, check out our guide to Viognier pairing article.
