Lark Hill Viognier 2013

Opened this up in a small bracket of three Viognier, it was the wine that looked initially least favourable, yet over time it opened up significantly.

Apricot lends an allure, a prettiness - background white florals, aromatics hold up over time - good start.

Touch of texture and weight on the palate - the wine is partially wild yeast fermented and a portion of the wine is fermented in barrel. Esters, meal, moving to stonefruit skins and suggestions of fresh ginger, with time that texture and spice becomes more pronounced. 

It comes across as a cooler expression of the variety. Length gently builds, phenolics, waxy texture, spice. Generous length. 92+

Tasted on: Wednesday 19th March, a Root transitioning to Flower Day
