Viognier Nagambie Victoria
The stately wineworks, beautiful gardens and scenic finger lakes of Tahbilk, would not look out of place amongst the great vineyards of the old world. Bundles of Viognier cuttings from the distinguished Rhone Valley appellation of Condrieu, were amongst the first vines established at Tahbilk in the 1860s. They continue to outperform, yielding an absorbing white wine with an exquisite mix of nutty, mineral characters, the accompaniement of choice, to match all mussel and shellfish recipes, succulent baked pork with apple dressing or artisanal white meat terrines.
Pale straw green hues. Floral and apricot nose, honey biscuits and ginger snap, stonefruits, cinnamon and spice. An engaging, fruit forward palate of delectable orchard flavours, nutty characters, orange blossoms and crystal minerality, supported by crisp, cleansing acidity. A bliss alongside gruyere fondue or freshly baked crusty breads and fine, hard cheese.
