APPEARANCE: Straw-yellow with hints of green
AROMAS: Ripe, mainly tropical fruit including nectarine, pineapple and pear, with a floral, jasmine-like scent. More extravagantly, may show a trace 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..
