Allegiance Wines Single Vineyard Viognier 2021

From a single vineyard in the Sellicks Hill area of McLaren Vale. Winemaker is Renae Hirsch.  Fermented mostly in stainless steel, with a transfer to 500L old oak puncheons towards the end of ferment. Barrel maturation for 6 months before blending to back to tank. There’s a little Roussanne snuck into the mix as well.

Pale lemon in hue. Aromatic white stone fruit, lemon pith, cookie dough, celery, ginger, green olive and green pear slices. Kept in a tight and linear shape through the palate. All nervy frame and dryness, missing a touch of richness that Viognier can have to give depth and balance. Served chilled and pair up with a big bowl of flash fried school prawns.
RRP: $30
Alc 12%
Rating: 17.25/20 (89/100)
