Spicy cuisine including Thai, Moroccan and Indian.VINTAGE NOTES
A relatively cool summer made for one of the best vintages for many years
with harvest taking place weeks later than usual and the slower ripening
providing more time for flavour development and more intensely flavoured
Light green colour with almost mineral spring facial stripes.
Well balanced with a bit of natural residual sugar to round up an innate, zesty acidity, typical of cool climate Viognier. This wine delivers an exquisite array of aromas such as ripe apricots, marzipan, orange liqueur and chamomile. Its body is graceful and velvety, with a mouth-watering oily structure and a crisp finalé.
This wine would be best served with Thai, Chinese, Indian, seafood and poultry dishes.
Drink now, or allow the wine to develop over the next three to five years.
