About the wine

Luscious white dessert wine that's sweeter than honey from an Australian icon
  • This sweet, golden-hued dessert wine is a sugary mouthful of apricot and honey with a creamy texture that carries on for ages. Sam found the perfect balance between high sweetness and a smooth elegance, by barrel-aging the wine in French oak for over a year.  
  • It's one of the trickiest wines Sam makes, but you can taste the extra effort and labor of love that goes into every drop. Leave a little out in a glass and taste how the flavors change as the wine warms up – get the whole range in a single glass, going from the sweeter fruit and honey flavors to a more savory nutmeg character and toastiness. 
  • Pair with your favorite blue cheese to cut through the sweetness, and remember, the fun thing about sweeter wines is they tend to stay delicious practically forever after you open them. One last thing: Sam has something to admit – “I love this wine!”

Best before
This late-harvest Viognier is delicious now, but has great ability to age, as the high sugar acts as a natural preservative. Combined with the high concentration of flavor, the wine has up to a decade of cellaring potential.

Serving advice
Drink it cool - not quite straight out of the fridge but around 42-46ºF.

Food match
A local French friend makes Tarte Tatin which is a delicious treat to go with this sticky Viognier.

Meet the winemaker - Sam Plunkett

  • Sam is one of our Australian All-Stars. He garnered lots of attention as the award-winning winemaker at Plunkett Fowles.
  • But Plunkett Fowles hit rough waters and Sam wasn't sure he'd be able to stay in the wine business...until he became Angel funded. Angel support has put his startup on the map.
  • Now Sam is off to the races, with the same dedication to quality winemaking that won so many accolades at Plunkett Fowles and none of the bother about sales or marketing.
