Perfumed aromas of white peach and floral notes, with flavours of fresh apricot, melon, peach and citrus notes on the palate with perfect linear acidity to balance. A wonderfully fresh accompaniment to any seafood dish or summer salad.

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014)88 pts

Feb 2015 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown - The 2014 Viognier has a gorgeous nose of pronounced apricot, clover honey and pear-juice scents with nuances of jasmine, allspice and powdered ginger. Medium-bodied, it delivers the goods on the palate with mouth-filling stone fruit and spices flavors, a pleasantly oily texture and good long and refreshing finish.

Tasted Oct 2011 - Bright, snappy stone fruit. Really opulent on the nose, has a certain sweetness. Floral, potent and long, and even has a grapey Muscat flavour. And very refreshing, light alcohol. (RH)

Aug 2015 - Fresh and aromatic, mingling pear, tangerine, floral and spice flavors into a sleek package, finishing with finesse. Drink now

This winery is better known for its Marsanne, but this Viognier is an excellent value. It exudes hints of apricot, pineapple, ginger and honey, coming across rich and creamy on the palate. Despite the heft, it finishes long, framed by mouthwatering acidity.

James Halliday (2014)93 pts

Tahbilk, an early mover (in the '90s) and quiet achiever, has racked up 3 trophies, 15 gold medals and 80 silver and bronze meals with the variety, and this vintage shows why. It has more apricot and peach varietal expression, without attendant phenolics, than any other producer except the unchallenged queen of the variety, Yalumba's Louisa Rose. Drink soonish while it keeps its bloom

Tahbilk’s been growing viognier on its Nagambie Lakes property for over 20 years now. I spent some time with a glass of this and I’m glad I did. The aromatics and mouth-perfume really build given some air. It tastes of honeyscukle and red apples, ripe melon and spice. Tasty. And quite heady, all told. It’s clearly one of the better viogniers going around.
