Rutherglen Estates Viognier

Cracka Review

Viognier is a first-rate companion to food. Match it with spicy Thai cuisine, Chinese and Mexican dishes, medium to strong and salty cheeses, strong flavoured fish, pork and chicken dishes.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
A rich, well-made wine, with some barrel ferment adding complexity to the honeyed tropical fruit flavours; does show its alcohol on the finish

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Fresh and lively citrus blossom/honeysuckle aromas, the palate following suit though adding a touch of apricot; partial barrel ferment merely a whisper; very good length and winemaking.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
A moderately intense range of fruit flavours, no one dominant; good length, though does show a twitch from the combined effect of alcohol and acidity on the finish.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Lively and fresh; has more elegance and delicacy than most Viogniers; apricot and a touch of musk varietal fruit.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Strongly accented apricot varietal bouquet; rich, intense apricot and cumquat palate; good acid balance. If from the Northern Rhone, would cost a fortune.
