Castelli Estate, Empirica Iced Viognier 2018
'There was little influence from Botrytis in the 2018 Vintage (as compared to the previous). The lower Botrytis influence makes for a cleaner, fresher style; although the concentration of typical Viognier characters is very evident. Rich, ripe apricot notes with a luscious, smooth palate. The intense sweetness in kept in balance from the modest alcohol and integrated acidity. It is not a wine for the faint hearted, the flavours are intense and powerful; but would make a wonderful accompaniment to complex dessert dishes.'
