The 2016 Afraid of the Dark has a slightly higher proportion of Viognier than in previous years and is one of the most aromatic versions of Afraid of the Dark we have made.
The nose is highly aromatic with nectarine, apricot and peach notes. The palate of the wine is dry and crisp but the texture provides for a full mouthfeel. Characters similar to those of the nose show on the palate but there is a perceivable minerality.
The wine is ready to drink now or it can be cellared for up to 2 years if preserving the crisp, bright character of the wine is the objective. Further aging will lead to the development of intriguing secondary flavour characteristics such as marzipan, honey and nutty caramel.
