Airstrip Marsanne Rousanne Viognier 2011
Goulburn
Available by the dozen
Half Marsanne, the balance of Rousanne and Viognier, sourced exclusively from the Mitchelton estate vineyard. Airstrip is a lively but tight blend of vigorous white fruit. Modest crop levels ranging from 2 to 3¬Ĺ tonnes per acre give this wine its core intensity. Each individual block is managed and vinified separately to allow the different qualities of each variety, shaped by the unique vineyard site and soil profiles, to shine through. The individual parcels of fruit are moulded together during blending to produce the unique Airstrip style.

Mitchelton's vines are rigorously husbanded, careful monitoring of fruit ripening ensures harvesting occurs at the time of the fruit's optimum maturity. The crushed juices are cold settled, racked and warmed before inoculation with choice yeasts. Some of the lime green yoghurty textured juice lees is retained when racking the juice, adding complexity to the final Airstrip blend. Marsanne and Roussanne are barrel fermented for nine months in 20% new French oak, the Viognier is barrel fermented in four years old French oak barrels to retain purity of fruit expression. All oak fermented wines are individually selected, barrel by barrel, to ensure the harmony of oak and texture in the final assemblage. Alcohol 13.0%
 
Pale straw with vivid green hues. Inviting aromas of peach and apricot blossom, hints of savoury pistachio meld with spicy oak high notes.  The palate is a showcase of delicacy, ripe apricots, white peaches and crisp apple to the fore. Secondary layers of cumquat combine with a complex spiciness on the well rounded, medium body palate.
Dalwhinnie Forest Hut Viognier
Pyrenees
Available in cartons of six
Fashioned from harvests of Viognier grown to the cooler, slower ripening Forest Hut property at Moonambel. The climes are three to four degrees cooler than the Dalwhinnie estate vineyard all year round, so vintage arrives some three weeks later. Vines make the most of the extra time on offer, to ripen grapes fully and develop vibrant fruit characters, translating into a solid Viognier wine with stunning grilled nut perfumes and juicy apple orchard complexity.

Deep pale straw hues. Bouquet offers lovely pinenut and pear fruit aromas, seasoned by hints of spice. A brisk palate of crunchy cool climate stonefruit characters, appleseed flavours and satiating savouryness, a fresh and crisp Viognier style exhibiting elegance and restraint, the ideal accompaniement to calamari, braised white meats or fruitbreads and brie.
dArenberg Hermit Crab Marsanne Viognier
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
The close proximity of d'Arenberg's vineyards to Gulf St. Vincent means the grapes can be stimulated by gently cooling maritime breezes. Much of McLaren Vale is planted to free draining soils underlaid by limestone, formed by the calcareous remains of local marine fauna. One such creature was the Hermit Crab, a reclusive little crustacean that to this day inhabits the cast off shells of others. McLaren Vale's first ever Marsanne Viognier is named Hermit as a reference to the region in France where the Marsanne grape dominates white wines.

At vintage time, Chester Osborn chooses when to pick the fruit by walking the vineyard rows and tasting grapes. Parcels of Viognier and Marsanne are crushed and settled before being treated to a gentle basket pressing which ensures the soft extraction of delicate but defined fruit characters of each grape. The Viognier and Marsanne components receive a similar vinification but are handled separately until the final stages. Fermentations are long and moderately cool to retain fresh fruit flavour. A small percentage of the Viognier is fermented in aged French and American oak barrels to add mouth feel and support the Viognier tannins. Components are assembled after a few months maturation.
 
Brilliant hue with light tints. Wonderfully aromatic, heavenly lift of candied ginger and crunchy, sweet white nectarine, complex Marsanne notes of green papaya and pistachio. Stone fruits hold sway over the sumptuous attack and mid palate, nuttiness of Marsanne and a delicate hint of sea spray. The complete package of stone fruits and spice before a long savoury finish make Hermit Crab the perfect dinner party starter.

dArenberg The Last Ditch Viognier 2009
McLaren + Adelaide Hills
Like its Rhone Valley siblings, Adelaide Hills Viognier is a wine that drinks well on release, evolving as it grows in complexity. Named after a site which lies at the bottom of a gully in McLaren Vale, the Last Ditch was originally planted to a small block of Doradillo vines during the 19th century. In 1995 the site became repopulated by Viognier. Last Ditch is a highly auspicious wine which receives the very best barrels of d'Arenberg Viognier, it simply blossoms on the palate and continues to linger.

A mostly Adelaide Hills wine, from fruit grown to the higher elevations which suit Viognier well, around a backbone of good McLaren Vale fruit. Parcels are vinified separately to retain regional highlights before assembling just prior to bottling. Grapes are passed through a gentle Demoisy rubber tooth crusher before being basket pressed to a method developed at d'Arenberg for the purpose of avoiding oxidisation. After three days of cold settling, juices are racked off gross lees to a selection of well used French oak barriques. A third of the barrels begin a wild yeast vinificaion, all are fermented on lees until dry. After seven months, the best barrels are selected for inclusion into the Last Ditch.
 
Brilliant green/ gold hue. A heady mix of exotic aromas, white peaches and nectarine are infused by candied ginger, spices and honey blossom. The palate displays white stone fruits and apricot florals, spices and savoury notes. Luscious and rich, the mouthfeel is balanced out by a lovely, flowery, nutty tannin which adds focus and length. A match to spicy Asian recipes calling on ginger and chilli.

Grant Burge Zerk Semillon Viognier 2009
Barossa
Predominately from the Zerk Vineyard, owned and operated by a fourth generation Barossa grower who knows his Semillon very well. As the vines are over seventy years old, they produce grapes with great depth, flavour and complexity. The Viognier is sourced from the cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills, to blocks that are ideally suited to this uniquely aromatic varietal.

Percival Burge established his nascent Wilsford Winery in 1916, thereby founding one of the Barossa's great winemaking dynasties. Barossa Semillon has a style of it's own and the old vines yield the most expressive fruit. Most parcels are hand picked at healthy levels of baume to retain the bright colour and vibrant flavours. Semillon is crushed and de-stemmed, the Viognier is whole bunch pressed, a technique which contributes elegance to the finished wine. After crushing and draining, the Semillon juices were transferred to tank for vinification, while the Viognier was fermented in a combination of prior use French oak barrels, followed by four months maturation and less stirring to increase palate complexity.
 
Pale straw with hints of green. A complex yet delicate bouquet of citrus blossom, apricots, orange sherbet and candied lemon citrus. The palate is rich, mouthfilling with fresh fruit flavours, offering hints of shortbread from the oak and lees contact. A beautifully balanced wine with fresh acidity which also lends generous length of flavour and a clean finish. Ready to drink now, a delicious match with food.

Heggies Vineyard Viognier
Eden Valley
Heggies have broken much ground with Viognier. A sumptuous wine full of delightful fragrances and exemplary balance between influences of terroir and good varietal fruit. A wine of full flavour and body with excellent length, perfect for accompanying a wide range of foods, especially grills and Asian cuisines.

Heggies is a very challenging Vineyard to manage but the site yields exceptional quality Viognier. Good rains at the beginning of the growing season augured well for vintage. By mid January the skies had cleared, and no subsequent rain combined with balmy temperatures for the remainder of the season meant that flavours ripened during a long even late summer and early autumn. After being hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, the juice was then barrels fermented by native or wild yeasts. These yeasts, along with the lees stirring, have given the wine wonderful depth with final selection. Fermented and matured nine months in a selection of older, prior use French oak hogsheads and barriques. Alcohol 14.5%
 
A pale straw colour with green tints. The nose is deliciously intense with the typical stone fruit flavours of Viognier, reminiscent of white fleshed peaches and apricots. The palate is round and luscious with the distinctive Heggies Vineyard mineral texture. A relaxed and refreshing wine with a myriad flavours, it's a tad more steely and aromatic than most.
John Duval Plexus MRV 2017
Barossa
Available by the dozen
Behind every great winemaker is a great winemaker's wife. Robert recounts how he finally gave in to Mrs Duval's pleas and created his first white wine. An artisan may spend decades refining his skills but a woman's intuition rules. Duval's Rhone styled cepage of Marsanne, Rousanne and Viognier has been a runaway success. Duval's aim with Plexus MRV is to promote a vibrant expression of fruit aromas from the interaction of the three varieties, to build structure and texture on the palate, rather than the blend's familiar acid crispness.

Two thirds of Plexus MRV is Marsanne grown to splendid vineyards in Marananga and Seppeltfield. A quarter of Roussanne is sourced from Kalimna and the balance of Viognier from Eden Valley. Gentle pressings of the fruit are combined with free run juices and cold settled. Vinification is initiated in fermenters, portions of Marsanne and Viognier complete their course in barrel where they remain until August. The remaining batches of Marsanne and Roussanne are aged on lees to enhance structure and infuse textures into the completed wine. A total of half the components are matured in a selection of mostly seasoned, fine grain French oak barrels for six months.
 
Attractive pale straw with lime hues. Fresh lifted aromas of stone fruit, honey suckle and citrus. Medium bodied with superb texture and mouthfeel. Flavours of mandarin and pear, fennel and Asian spice. Finishes on a note of citrus with minimal acidity. Drinking beautifully on release with the certainty of waxing wonderful complexity, toasted honey varietal characters as it continues to evolve.

Petaluma Adelaide Hills Viognier 2007
Adelaide Hills
A simply delicious wine, big and powerful yet all delicacy too, aromas of pineapples and sherbet-like confection impeccably backed by the florid qualities of the topical and spicey Viognier.

Petaluma has chosen the B&V Vineyard at Mount Barker on the eastern boundary of the Adelaide Hills to grow it's intense Viognier fruit. Although it's a westerly facing slope, exposing the vines to the hot afternoon sun, there is a high day to night temperature change and altitude of 1,100 feet (335m) making it absolutely ideal. The geology around Mount Barker is based on granitic micaceous schists associated with quartzite, producing well drained sandy loams of moderate fertility ideally suited to Petaluma's style of Viognier. Hand picking when lusciousness and structure are in balance is imperative. Fermentation in prior use oak barriques has enhanced the complex and intense flavours originating in the vineyard.
 
Refined floral scents lead to a palate which opens like a meadow of summer fruit, blessings of mineral, yummy stonefruit, spice, and priceless tropical characters. Stone-fruits aplenty, warm baking spice, pineapple and honeysuckle, a touch of quince paste, the crunch of apple and nashi.

Redbank Widow Jones Viognier
The merry widow? Ned Kelly and his gang laid siege to the Glenrowan Inn, a small hotel thirty minutes northwest of the King Valley, which was run by Widow Ann Jones. The gang held over sixty people hostage in the hotel. The Widow Jones threw a wonderful party for the bushrangers and their captives. A great night was had by all in what turned out to be Ned's last stand.

New varietal styles from high altitude vineyards reflect the diversity of the King Valley. Fruit is harvested from vineyards which sit at nearly eight hundred metres above sea-level, covered under snow in winter and shrouded by cloud the rest of the year. This fabulous wine from Kirsty Taylor's small estate vineyard in the King Valley is from vines grown to deep grey alluvial loams with good drainage. Ruddy vines exhibiting modest vigour, on a terroir that's tailor made for lively varietals like the Viognier. The grapes were hand picked and chilled to maximise aromatics, whole bunch pressed, then run into barrel for a wild fermentation. Fermented and matured for several months in older French hogsheads. Approx alcohol 14.5%
 
The Widow Jones Viognier is a pale gold colour with green tints. A classical Viognier nose of white flowers, ripe apricots, fresh cream and ginger. A magnificently layered palate that shows ripe fruits with honey, sweet oranges and spice. Widow Jones stands as an absolutely outstanding example of the complex Viognier grape, simply a luscious wine which is rich, but well balanced with zingy acid and great length.
