About

SubRosa is latin for under the rose. In ancient times, a rose was hung over the table as a mark of secrecy. What was said or happened around the table, stayed at the table.”

Well unfortunately for Adam Louder, if he keeps up the quality of his releases, his secret won’t be a secret for long.

This is a rippingly good Viognier, no question about it.

“I was trying to make a well structured viognier. It gets six months on lees, gets stirred, hangs out with some oak staves.” says the winemaker, and his first release hits bang on the MO.

This is no shy, retiring Viognier, but it’s not a “tinned apricot” version either. It hits that lovely, slightly nutty, full flavoured sweet-spot that so many Viogniers seem to miss.

Mike Bennie called it “Good gear.” in his 93 point review and we wholeheartedly agree.

What It Tastes Like

“Spicy scents, whiff of almond, apricot, but stone fruit is not the main deal. It’s a pleasing, complex scent. Hits the palate with rocket of acidity set amongst some crunch and juiciness. Unusual for viognier, offering chomp and refreshment with plenty of architecture. Not an oily, slippery mess. Good nut kernel savouriness to finish too. Good gear.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
