2015 Penner-Ash Viognier

Community Tasting Note

Likes this wine:

91 Points

Friday, September 9, 2016 - Nose: mildly aromatic with vanilla and lemon custards, spruce, fennel, wet asphalt and pine. Palate: medium body, creamy and just a touch sweet with a really nice amount of acidity that keeps it from becoming cloying. Big lemon, vanilla, honey suckle and white pepper. Straw and nice streaks of lime stone and slate. With extended air time a nervous tension emerges that tickles the palate and demands attention. Finish: it stays really bright and creamy, and petrol joins the party. Overall a really, really nice viognier with a welcome dose of bright acidity that ensures the multiple layers of this wine come through. Biggest fault is that the really interesting aroma profile doesn't have a bigger presence. The tension and soft nose suggest this might be better in another 6-12 months and then offer another one to two years of prime drinking. 91 now, soon to be 92-93.
