Relatively young vines of 15 – 20 years, high density planting or around 5,000 plants per hectare on calcareous clay soils, low yields of around 9,000 Kg per hectare… all of which becomes even more boring when you taste this utterly joyful, exciting Viognier. The nose is boldly aromatic rather than delicate, with a big whoosh of lovely apricot, apple blossom and lime zest. The texture on the palate is wonderfully silky, almost like a very fine olive oil, then a big burst of gorgeous citrus ripeness and a cracking, long finish. Yes, this all sounds a bit lavish but it’s actually a very tidy and precise wine, a genuine eye-opener and a style of wine we just never expected to find in Uruguay. No oak!
