Ballandean Viognier 2021
The grand old man of Queensland wine, Angelo Puglisi, may not be the hands-on winemaker these days but you can bet he keeps a close eye on proceedings and that he is very proud of what Chief Winemaker, Dylan Rhymer, has being doing for some time. This Viognier is chock full of orchard blossoms, stonefruit and ginger. It offers a lovely, slightly creamy texture and there is even a touch of a minerally backing. It has good crunchy acidity and this helps carry the length. This is very much a drink young style of wine so enjoy the pronounced flavours typical of this variety sooner rather than later.
