17.5 Raymond Chan

"The nose is fresh, tight and steely, with aromas of exotic white and yellow florals and subtle nuances of minerals. This has good depth and concentration, the purity of expression coming to the fore, revealing herbal and floral suggestions in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-full bodies, bright, lively and zesty fruit flavours of white florals and citrus zest are enlivened by refreshing acidity. The fruit shows with intensity and concentration and is guided by very fine-textured phenolics and bright acidity, the wine flowing with a little grip. Mineral and flint detail emerges and leads to a long, lingering finish of florals and citrus notes. This is a fresh, lively, concentrated dry Viognier with exotic floral and citrussy fruit and some flinty detail. Serve with seafood and Asian fare"

Viognier, beautiful yet tricky. Originating in France's Rhone valley and when made well is oppulent, cellar worthy, oily and mouthfilling.

The name ‘de la terre’ literally meaning ‘of the earth’, is a reference to both the vineyard soils and the earth brick construction used for our the winery and cellar door.

"Delicate notes of citrus blossom, quince and lychee alongside a seam of flinty minerality on the nose.

On the palate, an elegant and refined balance of ripe, clean Viognier flavours and gentle acidity. Flavours of honey, lychee and light citrus dominate. The palate structure is tight and linear with a clean, crisp and long finish.

Due to the very clean grapes and the specific winemaking techniques, this wine will reward careful cellaring for another 10 years or more."
