Tahbilk Viognier 2022
Originating in Condrieu in France’s Northern Rhone Valley, Tahbilk’s first plantings of Viognier were established in 1990. The inaugural vintage was released in 1996 to early critical acclaim with the Estate nominated by Australian Vignerons magazine as producing one of the ‘Benchmark Six’ Australian releases. Recognition has also come on the Australian Wine Show circuit with to date 4 Trophies, 22 Gold, 38 Silver and 76 Bronze medals awarded. Tahbilk Viognier releases are considered to be best appreciated as youthful and exuberant wines when their distinguishing floral and stone fruit characters are to the fore. Intense and fragrant rose petal and ginger spice lead a softly textured palate of apricot, peach and honeydew melon characters, lifted by a deliciously zesty acidity on the finish. Perfect with mild, spicy noodle dishes.
