2019 Carrodus Viognier

Medal One
Medal Two

Fresh apricots deliver oodles of weight and flavour with a white nectarine punch, hints of lemon citrus bring an acid twist to drive the back palate and keep the weight in check. A chalky texture and some oak tannin from barrel maturation carrying the flavour to a long lingering finish.

Tiny yields, this fruit is hand harvested lovingly by only Yarra Yering staff, into the cool room overnight and then whole bunch pressed. Any juice not pressed from the skins is then frozen to be used in the Dry Red Wine No. 2 ferment weeks later. The Viognier juice is run off to oak barrels without any clarification for primary fermentation. Largely left alone until bottling after 10 months. Only two barrels are produced.

Technical Data

Vines: This Viognier is sourced from some of the oldest Viognier vines in the country, planted in 1982. There are three blocks across the vineyard with varying age.

Cellaring: This fragrant style is approachable as a young wine but with some bottle maturation will evolve into a beautifully complex wine. This blend has a track record thus it will continue to evolve for a further 20+ years under suitable cellaring conditions should you want to cellar it for an extended period.
