Ravensworth The Grainery Marsanne Roussanne Viognier 2016, Canberra District, AUD $36
The viognier seems to be leading the charge, with pungent spice and ripe stone fruit aromas, plus pot-pourri and spiced-honey notes. There’s a hint of the oak barrel. Rich, full-flavoured, round, with lovely texture, intensity and length.
A superb wine that doesn’t fit convenient pigeon-holes. (Screwcap)
