2019 Two Nurses Viognier
Two Nurses Viognier is a rewarding full-bodied white wine that proudly celebrates Australia’s modest achievers. A worthy successor to Chardonnay, Viognier’s spiritual home is the Rhone Valley in France. After coming close to extinction in the 1960s, Peerick was part of the movement giving the variety a new lease of life.
Aged in oak, the Two Nurses blend has a nutty complexity that compliments Viognier’s full bodied peach, apricot, mango, honeysuckle and perfumed scents. A great all rounder with food, our Viognier is an easy-drinking, refreshing tipple that is bursting with character and screams “work hard, play hard” with every delightful glass.
From $33.95 750ml

The largest white variety grown on the Peerick property, our double gold winning Viognier was planted in the late 1990s and yields between 6.0 to 8.5 tonnes of fruit every year. A very difficult wine to get right, the grapes must be picked at just the right time to prevent volatility, something we at Peerick (Two Nurses) undertake with precision and by hand in order to produce a quality product. The Two Nurses Viognier is aged with care in French oak barrels, which it responds positively to, adding richness to the texture and a nutty complexity that complements its fruity taste.
With Two Nurses, Peerick is pioneering the Viognier variety whilst paying tribute to Australia’s humble carers, our Nurses.
