Grape variety

Viognier. Old and rare grape variety originating from the south of France.

Origin

The grapes for this wine come from 10 year old vines grown on hillsides at an average altitude of 150-200m in the Hérault and the Aude Valley in the South of the Minervois.
The vineyards have limestone and pebble soils and sufficient rain due the neighbouring mountains of the Cévennes and Pyrenees.

Vinification

The grapes are harvested early in the morning. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats at 17°- 19°C. The wine is aged for a few months on the lees. No malolactic fermentation in order to keep freshness.

Tasting notes

Nice yellow robe. Typical varietal aromas of fruity white peach and apricot combine with orange blossom and give way to an off dry wine with fresh acidity displaying distinctive varietal character which is round and rich on the palate.

Wine and Food

A perfect stand-alone aperitif wine or delicious with starters, fish, asparagus and fruit tarts.

Serving suggestions

Serve at 10°C
