Vintages Wine Panel: Made famous in Condrieu in the Northern Rhône, Viognier has travelled to other parts of France (and the world) with great success. Medium straw in colour, the Barriques Viognier greets you with a wave of intense peach on the nose, followed by pear and hints of honey. The palate expands with creamy flavours of citrus, orange blossom, and hints of fennel. This is medium bodied, aromatic, and features a crisp, dry finish. Bound to please with a vegetarian stir-fry. My note: Pretty and aromatic with notes of white flowers and peach. A wonderful aperitif or companion to many dishes, from medium curries and seafood. Rockin’ price.

Viognier food pairings: curries, seafood.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
