Cracka Value Rating
More delicate style with pear and ginger notes, spicy oak, a palate full of stone fruit and zest, medium weight with lingering citrusy acid.
Ravensworth Wine Reviews and Accolades
"This amazingly good white cements Bryan Martin’s place as one of Canberra’s best winemakers… deep, complex and fresh...delicious white peach and nectarine."
- Chris Shanahan, The Canberra Times
expert reviews about
A restrained and gently fragrant viognier from a cool climate and a cool vintage, this has a fine apricot, ginger and citrus fruit nose with subtle, spicy overlay. The palate is neat as a pin with soft, sliding textural build and a very gentle balance. Quiet wine, very delicate.NowThe Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2010
Bryan Martin has transformed this into a rich, ripe savoury barrel-fermented style, adding nutty appeal to the waxy gingerbread fruit characters. Rich savoury palate follows suit, more ginger biscuits and honeysuckle.Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 2008
Amazing, glowing yellow-green colour more typical of a 10-year-old wine than a 1-year-old; has plenty of spicy apricot varietal character and, if skin contact produced the colour, the expected phenolics don't appear on the finish.Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
