Viognier is quite unique with berries that shrivel towards full ripeness. Sampling and tasting the fruit during ripening is of utmost importance to end up with a balance between fruit, alcohol and structure.
This wine belies a tantalisingly perfumed nose of sweet honeysuckle which supersedes creamy aromas of peach and apricot before zesty citrus and kiwi flavours burst onto the palate with lingering hints of almond and stone fruit in the finish.
Personal Food pairing:
One of the best food wines – paring wonderfully with seafood, poultry, pork, salads and young mild cheeses, but perhaps best enjoyed as a cold aperitif on a sweltering day.
