2019 has produced a wonderful Viognier that straddles that fine line between opulence and generosity, with a sense of freshness and vitality keeping everything in check. Packed full of exotic mango, lychee, candied ginger and peach aromas, the nose also offers a more subtle array of jasmine, orange blossom and rosewater notes. The palate is almost hedonistic with its unctuous, pulpy, apricot generosity, a sense of savoury restraint with neatly pitched phenolics and lifted, gently honeyed length. A joyous edition of our Viognier, best enjoyed over the next few years. – Sandra de Pury
Few producers can match Yeringberg's viognier. Harmony is the aspiration, achieved by picking fruit over 8 days, so there's acidity, freshness and ripeness. There's also wild fermentation in barrel, no mlf and maturation in large-format, used oak. Ripe stone fruit, apricot and kernel, with ginger cream drizzled in honey. All tempered by lemon zest acidity and lime marmalade tang. There's richness here, without heaviness. A lovely viognier. 95 points. Jane Faulkner for James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2022.
Hits all the Viognier markers. Jasmine, ginger, fresh apricot, lime and lemon. It’s bright, packed with varietal flavour, yet keeps itself trim and lively, succulence and perfume, heady spice and fine powdery texture, with a lychee and ginger laden finish of excellent length. All just so. Top shelf. 95 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
