Love Abby. She’s a little more extroverted this year, with her apricot pie lusciousness clear to everyone in the room. A pure fruit expression with notes of custard apple and mixed spice, structured by excellent acid presence and finishing beautifully textured, with quince-like grip.

Fox Gordon has got the best out of this difficult variety, with fresh ginger among the mix of pear, apricot and orange zest; flavour is achieved without phenolic toughness, the acidity providing a pathway to food matching.

Wines like this are setting the pace for emerging white varieties in Australia. It's at once exuberant and restrained, racy and exotic, lively and spicy, with an alluring bouquet of pomegranate, guava and pepper and a palate core of spicy Nashi pear fruit. As fresh as an alpine stream, this is the best Princess Fiano to date.

Intense, toasty marmalade and dried apricot flavours kept in check by nice fresh acid.

Really zesty-smelling wine, quite striking for its mouth-watering grapefruit aromas. The palate has a fleshy and smoothly textured appeal, and tastes of tinned peaches and apricots, with a slippery, luscious finish.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Unusually fragrant and utterly correct varietal aromas of pear and musk, which come through unsullied by phenolics on the palate. As good as they come.

The thing about Abby is that she is really reigned in with a focus on acidity rather than ripe fruit, giving her a refreshing and controlled personality. Fine pear flavours and really tight minerality distance this wine from Yalumba’s more succulent style. Who would you like to entertain tonight? Abby would be a great dinner date.

Very good varietal expression, with rounded peach and apricot; has achieved flavour without phenolics, perhaps partly due to repeated hand picking. Adelaide Hills.

This gives an instant impression of coolness, stepping back into nectarine and citrus territory, cumquat and candied orange rind; really piercing. More peach and nectarine stone fruit flavours, complex varietal characters, nice textural slip and balance.

Undoubtedly varietal, showing both the strengths (apricot and dried fruits) and weakness (tendency to phenolics) of the variety. Food style.

With a small battalion of Fox Gordon reds in our list this year, you might mistake this outstanding little outfit for a red wine specialist. But we need to bring you up to speed on the uber- talented Tash Mooney, who has had a hand in a mind-blowing number of the great whites that grace these pages. You’ll understand, then, that when she unleashes a Viognier under her own label, we sit up and pay attention. And you should, too, because you’re about to meet a beautifully controlled, utterly delish wine. It has the delicacy of that fuzzy stuff on baby’s ears, the bite of icy cold, gently-stewed apricots, the crunch of fresh-rasped nutmeg and just enough stone and skin to balance its fruitiness. Bask in its glory the moment you get it back to your cave.
