2019 Yeringberg Viognier Yarra Valley – The wet spring and early summer set up the vines well for strong growth, and their careful vineyard management kept the threatened fungal diseases at bay. January and early February were hot, the autumn was more comfortable and the fruit ripened in a steady sequence. It is a vintage characterised by moderate yields, very healthy fruit and balanced wines, less opulent than 2018 but more forward than the 2017 wines.
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 their Viognier, best enjoyed over the next few years
