2019 Rusty Mutt Catnip Viognier

$30.00 $24.95 inc. GST

Viognier is a terrific white variety. It produces wines with more luscious texture, especially with a little bottle age, but is also fresh, fruity and zesty when young. This wine is completely un-oaked and was bottled as soon as possible after vintage to capture its youthful fruits and delicate aromatics.

When choosing a white wine to produce from McLaren Vale, I looked at the varieties that grow well here and the corresponding region in France. Shiraz and Grenache are the stand out red varieties of McLaren Vale which also grow very well in the Rhone region of France. One of the most interesting whites from this area is Viognier (Condrieu appellation). As it turns out, Viognier is the 4th largest white variety by tonnes crushed in McLaren Vale so finding some was quite easy! I made the wine in a fresh aromatic style, completely un-oaked. It looks a bit like a Sauvignon Blanc on the nose and a Chardonnay on the palate.
