Rollick Wines 'Oddball' Viognier Barossa Valley 2018
Viognier - not a wine most people have tried. Complex, textural and delicious, it's the gift that keeps on giving. Sip it slow or enjoy with a spicy Asian dish, you won't be disappointed by trying something new!
Aromas: Complex aromas of green nectarine, apricot and yellow stone fruit with nuances of roasted nuts and nougat.
Palate: Concentrated flavours of green and yellow stone fruits, orange blossom, with savoury notes of clove and hints of vanilla, all in perfect harmony and finishing with a long creamy, textured finish.
Harvest notes: Handpicked grapes were whole bunch pressed to a barrique with the remaining portion being pressed to stainless steel. The barrique was fermented naturally with indigenous yeast and matured on lees for a further 7 months. Regular lees stirring was employed to help build structure, generosity and a subtle creaminess in the wine. The stainless steel portion was fermented at cool temperatures to retain freshness. The wine was then matured on fermentation lees for 7 months with regular lees stirring before being blended and bottled.
