Chardonnay Viognier

Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Bright gold yellow with straw yellow tints.
  • Nose: Very elegant with a quintessence of tropical fruits, peach and white flower aromas, with a hint of vanilla and toasted bread.
  • Palate: Fresh and mellow with a persistent length on fruity notes.
  • Cellaring: In the first five years you will enjoy its fruit aromas which will then turn into more mature aromas. It will age well for the next 4 years when kept in good cellaring conditions.
  • Food pairing: Best served at 10 to 12°C with seafood and fish dishes, delicious with sushi, white meats, blue cheeses, and fruit desserts. This wine will also be very enjoyable on its own as a relaxing drink.
