Product Description

Tasting notes
The nose displays and intriguing blend of apricot, lemon and honey aromas.  Melon and pear flavours combine to deliver wonderful palate richness and a lingering mouthfeel.
Viticultural notes
The fruit for our Wild Ferment Viognier was grown in the Ballandean district of the Granite Belt. Viognier is a French Rhone variety that produces a crisp, dry wine which has great complexity, richness and character.  In the 1960′s the grape was endangered and almost extinct.  This has since turned around as the popularity of the wine has grown.
Winemaking notes
As the name suggests, in a wild ferment no commercial yeast is added.  Instead we encourage the juice to ferment with the indigenous yeasts present on the grape skins.  While the outcomes of such ferments can’t be predicted, they are often spectacular. Indigenous yeast, some juice solids and barrel fermentation have contributed to this complex wine.
