The Viognier grape originally comes from the Rhone Valley in France. It is not widely grown in Australia, but after much research was chosen by us because we believe the Blackwood Valley has the ideal climate and growing conditions for this variety. It is a highly individual grape and is one of the only white grapes that can be blended with red varieties. The nose and palate of this wine has the typical intense stone fruit characteristics found in Viognier. Nectarines, peaches and apricots predominate here and makes this wine enticingly luscious and fruity. This multi award winning wine is made using the traditional bétonnage method where the juice is continuously stirred on the lees before being bottled, giving the wine more intense and rich flavours. This method produces a complex and well structured wine which has a crisp dry finish.
A number of top quality wines were judged at the 2008 Blackwood Valley and Western Australia Boutique Wine Show in Bridgetown last week.
The event, now in its sixth year, attracted a record 236 wines from Boutique Producers who crush less than 250 Tonnes from all over the State, as well as wines from the local Blackwood Valley Wine Region. A total of 92 wines achieved medals.
