Haselgrove HRS 2009 Adelaide Hills Reserve Viognier

They'd be pretty close as they describe this gem of a wine perfectly:
"Our 2009 Reserve was produced from a single vineyard. The grapes were half fermented in tank and then transferred to three and four year old French oak barriques for completion. The wine was then lees stirred for 5 months. The winemakers have successfully preserved varietal distinction whilst developing multiple layers of flavour. The wine displays intense varietal aromas of peach and apricot. This combines with mineral characters on the palate to produce a flavoursome wine with a balanced lively finish with creamy toasty notes. Styles as a food wine it is best served fresh and slightly chilled with baked fish and white meat."

The key is layers of flavour in a wine that is still fresh and vibrant. $10 is a joke of a price for a wine of extreme quality and drinkability.

RRP: $20 -$18

Our Price: $10 per bottle by the dozen
