Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A range of peach, apricot, and stone fruit, fresh, ripe, and preserved. More fruit than floral, but there's some white floral aromas amongst the fruity bouquet. Nice acidity with a medium body. Easy to sip solo, but best with mild creamy curries, Coronation chicken, or seared scallops.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, well balanced medium plus acidity, medium plus stone fruit. Fresh, zesty, crisp, fruity with mouthwatering appeal. Great with appetizers, alone without food, honey Szechuan shrimp, a summer salad, or traditional fish and chips. Tasted 2017 vintage in April 2019. 89 points
Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium-bodied on the palate, with pleasant classic Viognier notes of white peach and a ripe pear finish with some lime and smooth, silky honey. Priced affordably, it’s a great wine to bring to a dinner party, as it pairs nicely with a variety of dishes from salads, to pastas and poultry.
From Abbotts & Delaunay, Les Fleurs Sauvages 2017 is a dry, lush citrusy Viognier with ripe stone fruit and lemon pie flavours on the palate. Great value under $20. This vintage was a multi-award-winning wine - Bronze at the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards and Silver at the 2018 International Wine & Spirit Competition. - Community Wine Reviews
