Backsberg Hillside Viognier 2009

Exceptional flavours of apricots, peach and lemon, with complex nuances of cinnamon and hazelnut derived from barrel fermentation. Ageing on the yeast lees has added a creamy texture with a powerful finish.

Superb as an aperitif, with creamy cheeses or light flavoured fusion dishes.
