2014 Lismore Viognier - 90+ PTS - WA

wa90"The 2014 Viognier was quite muted on the nose when I tasted it, perhaps not quite expressing the varietal character with as much confidence as previous vintages. The palate is more expressive with quite a candied opening - pralines, dried mango and a touch of citrus peel, gaining weight in the mouth but never quite letting go on the finish. Give this another year in bottle to find a louder voice...I think it will, hence my plus sign on the score. - Neal Martin"

2014 Lismore Viognier - 95 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"With just 0.8 hectares in the ground, my only criticism of Sam O’Keefe’s world class Viognier is that there isn’t more of it. Located on a protected, south-facing slope, which contributes to the wine’s freshness and vivacity, it’s a voluptuous, peach and nectarine fruity wine with subtle oak and balancing acidity. The closest the Cape comes to Condrieu. Drink: 2016-19"

2015 Lismore Viognier - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(barrel-fermented): Full yellow with a gold tinge. Full-blown scents of fresh apricot, almond and honeysuckle, with a building note of orange blossom. Fat, broad and slightly sweet but with a firm citrussy edge giving decent shape to the middle palate and back end. Ultimately less sweet than the nose suggests, with the almond note repeating on the slightly edgy finish. A distinctly exotic fruit bomb of a Viognier with obvious barrel fermentation character. - Stephen Tanzer"

2015 Lismore Viognier - 89 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Soft, toasty notes of apple skin, creamed melon and orange peel greet the nose and carry through to the medium-weight palate, where they're met with additional hints of melon rind and baking spice. A pithy texture lends length to the close. Drink now. - Lauren Buzzeo"
