A multi vintage blend of Viognier, Semillon and Riesling. The Viognier and Semillon components were matured in Maidenni dry vermouth barrels for 12 months then freshened up with a touch of new vintage Riesling. Bright straw colour with a touch of brassy gold around the edges. On the nose any varietal characters have been overtaken by Vermouth infusions from its time in barrel displaying lifted notes of dried herbs, clove, dried flowers, bay leaf and spice. Richly textured with a viscous mouthfeel and some heat on the finish, the vermouth influence is again dominate. Flavours of various herbs, clove and dried nuts finishing dry, slightly bitter and very spicy. Aftertaste of dried clove, various herbs, a bitter nuttiness and spice. An oddity.
