About

This is the lighter, fresher side of Viognier not often seen. We've all had the big, ripe, blockbusting styles of Viognier, and some of them, sad to say have made more enemies than friends. This is a different beast altogether. Tim Kirk has managed to bottle the essence of Viognier without the 'heaviness' so often associated with the grape. No oiliness here. Just a bucket load of freshness, vitality and a lot of casual drinking pleasure.

What it Tastes Like

"Super fresh and frisky and, in general, keen to put any preconceived ideas of 'varietal character' far behind it. There are stone fruit, spice, apple blossom and citrus flavours here and they march straight on with the job: nothing heady, nothing oily, nothing in your face. Drinking pleasure? A good deal of it." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
