Idiom Viognier 2020


On Back Order

An opulent, barrel-fermented Viognier with a typical light straw colour. Initial top notes of yellow citrus fruits develop into a complex melange of tinned peach, shortbread and chamomile on the nose. This medium to full-bodied wine has an elegant, buttery mid palate followed by a lingering sensation of nougat and orange blossoms. Serve chilled and enjoy the evolution of flavours in the glass. Try with veal, pork and roast chicken.
