Tasting Notes / Comments:Creamy peaches and apricots with a slightly honeyed edge make this Viognier the sort of wine that is almost as much of a joy to sniff as it is to swig - almost, but thankfully not quite. First choice, drink on it's own. Second choice, drink with a salad nicoise. Exclusive to Virgin Wines.
Virgin Wines (2000 vintage)

A pale, bright wine which both looked and tasted quite viscous o ’thick’ as one member of our tasting group described it. The wine smelt strongly of apricots with a touch of vanilla. It was dry and chewy in the mouth with more acid than fruit A tingling tongue sensation with a slight hint of malt whiskey in the aftertaste which lasts for a while in the back of the mouth.
