Spade Oak Vigneron Late Harvest Viognier

Golden straw yellow, orange marmalade, dried apricots and almonds on the nose and honeyed and luscious in the mouth, this is a very sweet rich and aromatic dessert style wine.

Brilliant with shell- and white fish, lightly spiced Asian dishes, roasted pork and hard cheeses, or simply gorgeous as a stand-alone dessert wine. A real treat! This wine will age beautifully for the next 6-8 years.

Raymond Chan 4 stars - 18/20

Full, deep, orange-hued golden colour, lighter on rim. This has a full and broad and opulent nose of well-ripened apricots entwined with savoury tropical fruits, the aromatics complexed by wild honey, crystallised fruits, nuts and caramel. Very sweet, luscious and decadent on palate, the mouthfeel is soft, filling and unctuous, with waves of flavour unfolding, to show ripe apricots, honey, savoury raisined fruit, nuts, toffee and caramel. The palate is broad, open and rounded, the low acidity adding to the density and viscous textures. The wine carries through to a weighty, long and unctuous finish. This is a full, lush and unctuous Late Harvest Viognier packed with burnished apricot and caramel flavours. Serve with crème brulee, steamed puddings and blue cheeses over the next 4-5 years. 1.14 tonnes of fruit picked, crushed and given 4 hours skin contact, fully barrel-fermented to 13.3% alc. and 172 g/L RS, TA 8.19 and pH 3.86, the wine aged 7 months in seasoned oak. 660 L, 146 dozen made. (375 ml) 18.0/20 Jun 2014
