About The Wine

Toolangi’s owners, Garry and Julie Hounsell have brought together some of the biggest names in Victorian winemaking with some of the most idiosyncratic vineyards in the Yarra to create a wine portfolio of class and distinction and a brand synonymous with excellence.

The formidable Mr Halliday gave the previous version of the Emanai (2013) a huge 94 points , a special value tick and said it was “the best Chardonnay Viognier I have tasted”, and no wonder.

The 2015 is a 50/50 split of Chardonnay and Viognier made by the team at Yering Station.

Rather than an afterthought or filler in the Toolangi range as many “chardy-v’s” tend to be, this is a serious, well-considered wine. The vineyard management of the fruit sublime, the winemaking impeccable, the packaging is brilliant, this is a cracking wine and offensively under priced at that.

Less than 400 cases produced and a no-brainer for lovers of textural whites.

What It Tastes Like

Immediately recognisable as viognier on the nose with the classic apricot and some other white and yellow fleshed stone fruits. But interwoven into this ripe fruit-salad are highlights of fresh Asian spices and a slight funkiness from the barrel ferment. The Chablis-esqué acid structure from the Chardonnay component keeps the oiliness from the Viognier well in check and combined with the French oak creaminess (3 months co-fermented in barrel), balances the palate to create a wine of incredible length. The Emanai is a master class in texture and balance.
