The wine critics’ assessment:

‘They say that 2018 is the vintage of a lifetime. This is a beautifully waxy, luxuriant Viognier to savour..’ (Oz Clarke – Dec 2019 – Three Wine Men)

‘Peach, apricot and pineapple – very juicy and bright. Good acidity and fresh and vibrant on the finish..very good! My first Brazilian Viognier.’ (Suzy Atkins – Dec 2019 – Three Wine Men)

‘Jasmine and lightly tropical aromas are expressive..in the mouth peach and apricot fruit character..zesty pithy acidity.’ (Tom Cannavan – March 2020 – wine-pages.com)

 

Description

ABV: 12.5%

APPEARANCE: Straw-yellow with hints of green

AROMAS: Ripe tropical fruit including nectarine and pineapple – perhaps even a whiff of banana, ‘tutti-frutti’ or bubblegum!

TASTE: Medium bodied, dry, with bright fresh acidity balanced by a rich palate, packed with intriguing stonefruit flavours. As is often the case with Viognier, this wine has a slightly waxy texture; finish is long and lingering

FOOD PAIRING: An ideal partner for Coronation chicken but will work well with any buttery dishes, salads, quiches and seafood

OVERALL: A vibrant and excellent value Viognier from small vineyard very close to southwest Brazil’s border with Argentina. Altogether an unusual and complex wine that will surprise many..
