Taste profile from the winemaker: "The 2007 Y Series Viognier has aromas of fresh ginger and candied grapefruit with hints of white flowers. The palate is full-bodied with grapefruit and apricot flavours, and displays a persistent finish, matched with typical silky and harmonious viognier texture. This wine will reward when enjoyed with dishes containing goats or rich fetta cheeses."

ABC Wines review: A green-gold in color, this wine has aromas of citrus and pineapple with citrus blossom notes that carry forward onto the palate which adds a very pleasing acidity resulting in a well-balanced flavor profile. The very long finish has a mild smoky character. This wine can easily be paired with a wide variety of cuisines; try it with barbecue chicken or pork. Our score: One of the better wines of this varietal we've tasted recently. Above Average to Excellent.
