Tasting Notes / Comments:An amazing price for a straight Viognier, a grape variety that is very much 'en vogue'. This wine boasts clean and crisp flavours with attractive peach and apricot fruit. The grapes are picked at night to protect from oxidation and spend 3 months in contact with their lees to encourage yeasty flavours.
Majestic Wine Warehouse (2001 vintage)

A pale lemon coloured wine - clear and bright. To the nose this offered our tasters floral and honey aromas with some pear and apricot fruit. To some it was mild and even thin. In the mouth it was fresh and crisp with some initial sweetness giving way to citrus fruits. Nothing complex but all tasters found it agreeable, ‘an immediate experience’, and ‘a summer wine for drinking in the garden’
