Fresh, cool climate Viognier from Orange in New South Wales, a few hours west of Sydney.
Taking its inspiration from France's Northern Rhone whites. Dry, spicy and quite powerful there are dried apricots and honeydew lifted by touches of lime on the bright and vibrant palate. There's a generous depth of flavour along with a smooth body which leads to the long elegant finish which has a hint of peppery spice.
A very good example of Philip Shaw's highly individual style.
