Apricots, orange peel, citrus and biscuit aromas explodes in the glass and then follow through to the palate for a rich mouth feel with a lingering orange marmalade aftertaste.

Viognier is a food wine and complements a whole array of dishes.
It loves spice and would be a great match for mild, creamy curries and spicy noodle dishes like Pad Thai. It also goes very well with a Chicken tagine or poached Salmon.

in the vineyard : 

North Cartreff soils, i.e. Sand topsoils and Shale subsoils.

about the harvest: 

Grapes were harvested very ripe.

in the cellar : 

Settled for 24 hours at 10-12°C after which it was racked and inoculated. Slow alcoholic fermentation at 14 - 16°C in tank. 30% was fermented in new and 2nd fill 300L French oak barrels and the remaining 70% in stainless steel tanks. Making use of different yeast strains adds to the overall complexity of the wine. Wine was kept on the lees and stirred twice a week for the first 2 months to add to the mouthfeel and wood integration of the wine.
