The wine is pale gold in color with bright green highlights. The nose displays aromas
of apricots, honeysuckle, wild fennel and grapefruit. The palate is rich yet restrained, with succulent tropical flavours that are matched with fresh acidity, a taught band of minerality and a creamy texture.
"Ripe and exotic on the bouquet, with apricot kernel, ginger and cinnamon; the palate, while unctuous, is fresh, finishing with lemony acidity."
Australian Wine Companion
"Made from 100% Viognier, the 2010 The Surely Muse has intense notes of peaches, poached pears, honeysuckle and a whiff of fennel seed. The medium-bodied palate has a great concentration of citrusy / mandarin peel flavors with some silkiness to the texture and a long finish. Drink it now to 2013.
The Wine Advocate
Well balanced with good mixture of fruit an acidity. Had it with sea bass and it was fabulous. Would definitely purchase again.
I dont know what they are doing down under, but whatever it is, it's working. This Viognier is very good and for the price, a fantastic deal. The appearance is dark and rich with hints of ruby. After a little decanting, the nose is woody and rich with hints of fruit, wild berries and soft spices. The pallet forms nicely and transitions very well from its wood influenced beginning to its fruity middle and semi-dry, long finish. At this young age, grab a case of this wine and put it in the cellar. I think this vintage will be outstanding in 5-10 years.
