Good shiny yellow robe; pear-pear skin aroma, a spiced note with a baked-flan underair. This is a genuine Viognier, with a musky curve, peach-pear-apricot all nicely jumbled together. It is overtly fat on the palate – it billows out, the texture coated. This has a crowd-pleasing depth, and also ends on a small note of grip/salt, which helps its finesse. Dried fruits, and a touch of tannin show on the finish, along with vanilla pod and apricot. Lots of wine for a vin de pays, impressively so.
