This 2021 Grampians Viognier is a classic example of the effusive outpouring of flowers and apricots that Viognier is capable of. It is like peach and apricot essence on the nose, and a quick glance at the alcohol explains why this expressive, rambunctious nature may be so: 14.5%. Ripe. In the mouth, it is everything that the nose has promised, with the most authentic display of apricot jam, outside of, well, apricot jam. Impressive. With a bit of citrus rind and brine to go with, this is plump, billowing and quite delicious.
Drink date: 2022 – 2027
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.
