2022 Carrodus Viognier

Medal One
Medal Two

Signature apricot blossom, lifted white flowers of honeysuckle and a little musk stick aroma and hints of toasty oak. Fresh cut apricots fruit flavour delivers oodles of weight with a white nectarine punch, hints of lemon verbena 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 barrel without any clarification for primary fermentation. Largely left alone until bottling after 10 months. Only a single 228L barrel was produced.
