Bellingham The Maverick Viognier 2004

Colour: Rich straw with a green hue.
Nose: Upfront, bold and perfumed with an alluring complexity of candied fruit, litchi, peaches & cream and spice aromas.
Palate: All the aromas are carried through to the rich, full palate which has a hint of sweetness balanced by a racy acidity on the finish. The flavours linger invitingly on the aftertaste.
Overall: A robust, ample-bodied discreetly sweet wine, brimming with intense exotic fruit flavours, remarkable aromatics and a generous mouthfeel.

The perfect accompaniment to Sushi, Thai and Oriental dishes, spicy chicken and piquant Indian curries.
