Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Good value, the 2009 vintage is sturdy (14 per cent alcohol) and dry (3.9 grams/ litre of residual sugar), with a slightly creamy texture and ripe, peachy, slightly spicy and nutty flavours. The very easy-drinking 2010 is a generous wine with rich, ripe fruit flavours, a slightly nutty, buttery complexity, and a soft finish. At well under $20, it's arguably the best-value Viognier on the market.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Fragrant, fleshy, ripely flavoured wine with citrus and peach characters and a dryish, sustained finish. Fine value at $18.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
The easy-drinking 2008 vintage is mouthfilling, with decent depth of fresh peach, pear and spice flavours and a rounded finish.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Handled entirely in tanks, the 2004 vintage is based on second-crop vines in the Bell vineyard at Hexton. A robust wine (14. 5 percent alcohol), fermented to near dryness (4. 5 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is still youthful, but shows attractively ripe pear and spice flavours, with a slightly creamy texture. Good drinking through the summer of 2004-05 - and great value.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Handled entirely in ranks, the debut 2003 vintage is based on first-crop vines in the Bell vineyard at Hexton. It's a fresh, clean, vibrantly fruity wine, full-bodied, with lemony, appley, slightly spicy flavours and a crisp, dry finish. It's less powerful and lush than the country's top Viogniers, but the price is right.
