About this Item

Samantha O'Keefe - Lismore Estate Vineyards

6 x 750ml bottles of Lismore Estate Reserve Viognier 2017

Highly rated vintage by the international critics (96 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous, 94 Points, Tim Atkin MW, 94 Points, Decanter Magazine). This wine is considered one of the best in the category.

The grapes were handpicked and whole bunch pressed, extracting the juice slowly at 550 litres per ton. Settled for 48 hours, the juice was fermented and aged in Burgundian barrels for 15 months. This Viognier boasts aromas of honeysuckle, peaches, and dried apricot with a saline and citrus finish.

Barrel ageing and lees contact provide a fuller mouthfeel and increased texture, while the fresh acidity supports the extravagance of the nose and palate. Enjoy now or cellar for 2-4 years for added complexity.

(6 (1 x 6))
