Ballandean Estate Viognier 2013

An interesting wine this, simply because it is not an 'in ya face' style Viognier.

Florals, honeysuckle and white flower aromas stand aside for a waft of apricot skin. Dried apricot flavours on the palate move to a furry type grip and slippery finish. There is some mouth warmth.

Good palate weight and very easy to drink with a length just hanging around longer than expected. Serve with lunch on a hot day with anything from sushi to chicken to salads.
