Welmoed Viognier 2011

Pale straw colour. Lively tropical aromas of peach blossoms and lime with floral and perfume notes. Palate is delicately textured with a smooth, yet fresh acidity and excellent balance. Elegant, medium bodied wine with satisfying finish.

Serve with tuna sashimi, Kingklip, or a variety of chicken dishes.
