2020 Viognier, Domaine de Vedilhan, Pays d'Oc, France
Honeysuckle on the nose; richly textured and nicely balanced with flavours of apricots and a satisfying delicate bitterness on the finish. Stunning Value!
Domaine de Vedilhan is the estate of the Fayet family based in the village of Moussan close to Narbonne. The property is quite unique in that there is a small brook running around the outskirts which provides natural irrigation to give much needed water. This gives the wines their freshness and appeal; keeping the vines cool in a very hot climate.
13% ABV. Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
Delicious with Thai or fusion food or meats cooked in creamy or fruity sauces.
"The grape originates in Condrieu in the Northern Rhône and this is a classic example from vineyards in the South of France. The mix of peach and apricot on the nose is quite light as are the flavours on the start of the palate, richer more concentrated in the middle with the ripe peach and apricot underpinned by tangerine freshness. Rich at the back lots of ripe pears, a hint of apricot and yellow peach, a depth of fruit that goes well with fuller flavoured food the perfect partner to salmon." Derek Smedley MW
