The concept behind our Equilibrio range is to promote the very best barrels, clonal mix and new oak integration to create a few cases that will benchmark the potential of each vintage. Some would call it Reserve but we call it Equilibrio as great wine is all about harmony and balance.

[2021 Vintage] – 95 Points by Aaron Brasher, The Real Review, October 2022

“Excellent viognier, with varietal tendencies towards viscosity and amplitude, with impressive freshness. Full-weighted of feel, boasting sapid notes of apricot pith, ginger and orange blossom. Excellent wine for the table. Drink or hold briefly. 94 Points.”
Ned Goodwin MW, jamesuckling.com, December 2023 [2021 Vintage]
“Vibrant, bright and youthful in the glass. Fragrant aromas of apricot, yellow peach, sweet florals, mandarin, spice and honey—really pretty. Full flavoured, powerful and driven; there’s an impressive core of white stone fruit that powers the palate, then lively acidity and some grippy phenolics kick in and bring plenty of structure and poise. A viognier that is varietally correct, has plenty of power but avoids the oily, viscous style. Really smart! 95 Points.”
