Rob Geddes MW (2011 Vintage) says
Has a pleasant honey suckle, green apricot and lavender aroma. The palate has a creamy texture, juicy ripe citrus fruit and mouth watering acidity and moorish length of flavour.

Pleasant weight and mouthfeel, a gentle cocktail of flavours, with fair acidity; will grow character with time in bottle.

Terrific value drinking, this smells of orange zest, white peaches and apricots, quite floral too; really attractive and tending towards exotic territory. The palate has creamy richness right throughout, there's plenty of apricot flavour here, softly balanced.

Highly scented; overall driven by viognier's aromas and flavours; plenty happening, including a touch of residual sugar on the finish.

Attractive texture; minerally, almost gritty, but in the good sense, the marsanne coming to the rescue of the viognier; good fruit flavour balance.

Marsanne pulls back the opulence of the viognier to good effect; more obvious food style; plenty of flavour and length.

Big, rich, full flavoured; ripe tropical fruit; carries 14.5° alcohol surprisingly well.
