The Virgilius is our flagship white wine. After more than 40 years of working with this variety, the cool elevated slopes of Eden Valley has proved its place in the world as one of the great homes of Viognier. Handpicked and wild fermented in old French oak, this is wine with layers of richness, complexity, fine textures and flavours. Pale gold with green highlights. Intense aromas of apricots, cardamom, white pepper and fresh ginger. Lifted ginger spice is layered on the palate with mineral, sourdough-like texture, apricots and almond savouriness. It is complex while at the same time shows purity and restraint that will unwind slowly in the glass and take the imbiber on a sensory journey. Fermented and matured for 10 months in mature French oak barriques, puncheons and demi-muids. The Virgilius, while showing all the virtues of great Viognier as a young wine, will reward cellaring as it evolves in the bottle, with even more layers of flavour and aroma.Awards:
The culmination of 35 years of fanatical attention to detail in taming this flamboyant variety is packed into this bottle.
