COPY OF Kasteelberg Viognier 2013 -- EDIT ME

This oak-matured Viognier is a voluptuous wine with lovely nutty and light buttery flavours well balanced by a floral perfume on the nose. The style is rich and ripe and well-structured to result in an elegant wine, ideally suited to complement suave dinners.

Well-chilled to make any occasion festive. Enjoy with exotic, fragrant dishes. This is a style of white wine that will age beautifully and is the perfect partner to pork, duck, curries and bowls of creamy risotto.
