Qwine Review
Granite Belt Viognier with engaging aromas ready to let loose.  Think white flowers, apricot nectar, custard apple and white fleshed stonefruit. In the mouth that burst is toned down somewhat where there’s a generous presence of fruit. Well balanced, there’s a generosity about the mouth feel courtesy of some barrel fermentation. Ginger spices hum along on a long and moreish finish. Tidy drinking ready for chicken dishes.  
Drink now to three years.  89/100
