Possingham & Summers Viognier 2013

Special Price $18.00 Regular Price $25.00
This is an older White from 2013, it is nonetheless holding up really well and is still light and fresh. Flavours and aromas of citrus, peach and jasmine are on offer, with fine, fluffy tannins finish it off. Perfect with seafood.

The Possums Vineyards were established by Dr John Possingham and Carol Summers in 1984. The grapes harvested from Blewitt Springs were sold to neighbouring winemakers in the McLaren Vale wine region. The first Possums Vineyard Shiraz wine was made in 2000 and became popular with wine critics both in Australia, U.K and the U.S.A. using contract winemaking facilities. Construction of the Possums Winery began in 2004 at Blewitt Springs, the same year the Trophy winning Possums Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was created.

Less than 40km south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale is another one of South Australia's renowned Shiraz producers, accounting for roughly 50% of grapes crushed annually. The climate is markedly different from the Barossa, being much more Mediterranean with four clear seasons and higher rainfalls. McLaren Vale reds reflect this, showing deep complexity and power along with the ability to cellar for decades. While Shiraz grabs the most attention, chocolate-rich Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Viogniers are worth sampling. The climate is influenced by ocean breezes coming in from the Gulf of St. Vincent to the west and the altitude of the Sellicks Hill ... Read Full Article

Viognier (pronounced 'vee-own-yay'), is a white grape varietal with a distinctly French background. With its own special charm, it has managed to squeeze in a seat at the red wine table; breezing into the room like a freshly groomed bachelor, leaving a pleasant scent in its wake. Historically speaking... This particular full bodied white wine varietal retains a strong association with the Northern Rhône Valley in France; Condrieu to be more specific, where it is the only permitted white wine grape for this region. Although it's certainly no stranger to wine cellars and liquor stores today, it almost vanished completely in the mid 19 ... Read Full Article

The climate is influenced by ocean breezes coming in from the Gulf of St. Vincent to the west and the altitude of the Sellicks Hill Range to the south. Soil type is varied, ranging from red-brown loam and sand to dark clay and the often-mentioned terra rosa. A misspell of the Italian phrase "terra rossa" (meaning "red soil"), this ruddy-red stuff is left behind when limestone breaks down, and any viticulturist will tell you it's great stuff to grow vines in due

Although it's certainly no stranger to wine cellars and liquor stores today, it almost vanished completely in the mid 1960s.
