Aroma: Signatory apricot blossom, very lifted and expressive jasmine and musk stick aromas.

Palate: Apricot flavours and a silky texture deliver oodles of weight and flavour. Tannins, rarely seen in white wines, add flavour and texture while 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 No2 ferment weeks later. The Viognier juice is run off to old oak barrels without any clarification for primary fermentation. Due to the warmer growing season in 2016, no malolactic fermentation was encouraged, a change from previous years.

Only two barrels produced in 2016
