2004 Heggies Vineyard Eden Valley Viogner

So glad to have stumbled on to this great wine. This has to be up there with the best of this variety in Australia.
The colour is pale straw with a hint of green apple.The nose has some steely minerals accompanied by notes of pears and apples.
The palate is where it all happens and the first thing I noticed was the superbly rich unctious and velvety texture. Within this there are the minerals, rich stone fruit flavours with just a little apricot, and good acid to help hold it in balance. It is a rich and full bodied wine (no doubt helped by the 14.5% alcohol) but in no way fat or flabby. It still retains its finesse and fine structure with superb balance. A long finish simply tops off a wonderful wine. No need to cellar this wine more than 12 months or so – it drinks at its peak right now. This treasure came to us via the BABE boutique wine club, we will be looking to get more soon.
