Tahbilk Viognier 2013

Viognier sometimes doesn't work for me - it can be oily and have quite some alcoholic heat - but this viognier from Tahbilk is a good one.  It has medium intensity aromatics reminding of stone fruit kernels, fresh apricots and pink lady apples.  The palate appears dry, though it gives an impression of verging on off dry.  It has medium acid and flavours of apricot compote and reminds a little of the medley of stone fruits available from the troubled SPC not far north of Nagambie.  This is a good quality viognier with some length and depth of flavour that is ready to drink now.  Good
