Traditional Viognier notes of lemon, honey and tropical fruits greet your nose. The acid balance brings out a taste of lemon, orange, peach and kiwi, with flavours of gooseberry and creamy lemon tart. Great length and a clean finish. We suggest trying the wine starting in late 2016 when the orange and peach flavours reveal themselves.
As this wine is un-oaked, the crispness of the wine balances well with fattier foods such as cheese, chicken and fish. The round flavours of the wine stand up to rich foods such as fish, duck and chicken with big sauces, and lobster with butter and cheese, pears with crème anglais, duck breast with honey and lavender, arugula salad with candied walnuts.
