|Tasting Notes / Comments:||A rich complexity of pears, mango, floral honeysuckle and violets aromas and flavours.|
Weavers of Nottingham (2000 vintage)
The tinge of green in this otherwise pale yellow wine is more reminiscent of a Sauvignon Blanc than a Viognier. The nose gradually opens up with honey and floral aromas, someone described it as peaches and cream – perhaps more a note of pleasure than a pure description of the smell. In the mouth this wine has a creaminess with oaky vanillas and rounded fruity tastes and then just that hint of bitterness on the side of the tongue. A good length with a cooling effect ideal for hot sunny days.
'Enjoying Viognier' (2000 vintage)
A weighty(ish) palate - with a delicious creamy texture. A goodly amount of flavour too - sweet violets was the initial impression followed by that whipped softness of spicy honeysuckle flowers that screams Viognier. Lovely.
