Oldenburg Viognier 2015

This maiden vintage of Viognier sports a lively, apple-yellow colour. The opulently, perfumed nose shows ripe peach and rich vanilla aromas. The broad, well-filled palate is perfectly balanced by adequate acidity. The wine has an enduring richness, good grip and a very long finish. A food wine par excellence!
