Southern France, with its multifarious regions, indigenous grapes, cultures and tradition is home to some of the most exciting, characterful wines in the world! This Viognier was picked at optimum ripeness at night to preserve the fresh aromas. It has delicious notes of apricot and honeysuckle, it has a full unctuous palate but isn’t too overpowering and it finishes lovely and dry.
“It’s become a cliche to say that any cheap viognier is like a “mini-Condrieu” but this one actually is, not least because it’s not just about being floaty and Galadriel-like, all peaches and buxom perfume. This has some structure and a bit of oak (staves, but I forgive it) which makes it feel more serious. I found it in the Riverside studios down the road from me.” Victoria Moore The Telegraph 18th September, 2014.
