Appearance: Aroma: Taste
This wine exhibits a fresh green-gold hue, testament to its barrel fermentation and maturation. Sumptuous and enticing, a flintiness on the nose is complimented by delicious citrus aromas of lime and mandarin skin. Delicate peach blossom and jasmine flower notes develops in the glass. As the wine has not undergone malolactic fermentation, the palate is a fresh, complimenting the even-handed wooding applied in the cellar, leading to a crisp, clean and lingering aftertaste. Enjoy now or to 2025.
Personal Food pairing:
Spicy pork tends to go well with the light spiciness and somewhat sweet flavor of Viognier wine. It will flatter the dish because there are similar flavors in the spicy pork.
Herb-Spiced Pork cooked with a lot of herbal spices added to it will pair best with a Viognier as well as with Chardonnay. Pork cooked in cream-based herbal sauces work especially well with these types of wines.
Asian-Spiced Pork a New World Viognier works well with pork dishes that have Asian spices in it because of the deep fruitiness and low tannin count of the wine.
