Haan Viognier Prestige

Cracka Review

The intense aroma of stone fruits and florals dominate this wine, but is balanced by a spicy oak aroma to produce an incredibly complex wine. This complexity is carried over onto the palate where it is enhanced by minerally acidity which gives it texture and great persistence. The stone fruit flavours of pears and apricots linger throughout the palate with a toasty oak influence apparent. This wine shows a pristine varietal character not seen in other Viogner wines.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Very ripe apricot fruit; pushing the envelope; the richness and varietal expression on the palate is inevitably achieved at the cost of some phenolic weight

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
One of the best viogniers going; flowery, aromatic apricot nuances on the bouquet, the palate adding touches of fruit spice and musk; long finish, no phenolics.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Full-throated, no holds barred wine; ripe apricot and peach fruit, but warms up on the finish more than usual; 150 cases made.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Honeysuckle and apricot aromas proclaim the variety; a perfectly poised and balanced palate brings touches of honey and lemon butter; no alcohol heat; 125 dozen made.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
The bouquet is still to develop, but distinctive varietal fruit on the palate; pastille and some musk; sweetness ex alcohol.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Intense, but finer than the varietal version; powerful, concentrated honeysuckle, fig and peach. One hundred dozen made.
