Like the much anticipated kiss of a new lover, Singularity draws the soul into a gratifying experience that touches your senses in the most pleasurable ways.

Singularity is the only Viognier in the world comprised entirely of free run juice from grapes hand-selected from five different harvests (2005 to 2009) and matured using only wild yeast fermentation to create a singular expression of the finest qualities of this rare and once almost-extinct cult varietal.

A once-off limited release of 4 barrels (100 cases) only.

Deep golden hues echo the promising palate of a rising harvest sun. Clear, brilliant lustre and luminosity with long legs indicative of high extract foreshadow an intense, extroverted personality that invites immediate interest.


Alluring aromas of orange blossoms and honeysuckle in a large yet nuanced nose that is so forward that it not only comes across a crowded room to you, but it puts its hand on your leg and asks you up to dance.


A complex and curvaceous blonde that slowly undresses layers of sun-dried fruit (such as pineapples and peaches) to reveal a well-toned mineral backbone that frames the fruit and seduces the senses before delivering whispers of butterscotch and honey in a refreshing farewell that lingers like the post-coital kiss of a satisfied lover. A goddess of a wine.
