Lark Hill Viognier 2013 (Canberra)
12%, Screwcap, $25
This is the best Lark Hill Viognier to date.
Lark Hill have clearly worked the V weed to show its best here, with the Carpenter’s using a combination of mid season picking (to retain freshness) and a little wild fermentation in old wood to give that combination of both freshness and richness.
A viable challenger to the more tropical Marlborough Sauv style, this is not profound but pretty clever wine.
Tasted: Feb 2014

Would I buy it? I’d drink a glass.
