Viognier is a biologically unstable grape variety and for a time was practically extinct with only a tiny amount grown in the Northern Rhone. However, since more stable clones have been propagated Viognier has become the “Holy Grail” for many white wine makers. So what’s the big attraction? On its own, the vine in cool climates produces a very aromatic wine with a perfumed nose which is even more exotic than Gewurztraminer. Every time we’ve tasted the famous Chateau Grillet – the nose has been as mysterious as the wine is rare, with a range of aromas that can best be described as super ripe, exotic tropical fruits that are verging ‘on the turn’ or going off.

Tasting Notes: An outstanding example of Viognier. Bright straw colour with wonderful exotic fruit aroma. Notes of quince paste, paw paw, honeycomb, spice and mixed peel appear. The palate has a voluptuous mouthfeel with velvet texture. Flavours of dried orange peel, honeycomb, quince paste, spice and tropical fruit on the turn emerge. The palate structure is slightly broad, followed by a very long aftertaste.
