The 2019 fires are long forgotten by most, but they had a profound effect on our 2020 Viognier. We minimised skin contact due to smoke taint concerns, which proved to be the right move (the little fruit we kept on skins went smoky). So it isn’t the usual Sunshine on my Skin, but a rather different, almost white wine. The good news, it is delicious (and not smoky). Necessity is the mother of (re)invention. Of white Viognier.
Organically farmed Viognier, Grown by Mike and Margaret Sparrow in Mt. Torrens, Adelaide Hills. No additions
