Wine Tasting Note: Heartland Viognier/Pinot Gris, 2005, Langhorne Creek, South Australia.
From Oddbins for £8.99.
Now this looks interesting thinks I - a Viognier/Pinot Gris blend from Oz. Minimalist label... ummm.. Ben Glaetzer wine maker... gotta be good. A blend of 75% Viognier and 25% Pinot Gris. 13.5% alcohol. The aroma is yeasty with just a hint of the floral touches expected from Viognier. The palate is weighty and quite crisp and lively. Not what I was expecting at all. Dry too, no hint of sweetness. Peach stones and citrus to the fore. Crisp limey finish. It grew on me actually - the palate becoming quite layered and interesting with every passing sip. I probably over-chilled it as I am prone to do.
Scribblings Rating - 92/100

Andy,

The 2004 Heartland Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, both from the Limestone Cost are also well worth a try. Great value for money.

Cam Wheeler

Hi Cam
I saw both those too in Oddbins - I shall have to give them a go if you recommend them.
Cheers.
