Viognier is the key white grape of the northern Rhône, more recently adopted in Australia. Here we have it dazzlingly aromatic, exotically fruity and dry from 'Winery of the Year 2008' Angove, one of the few remaining independent cellars Down Under.
Viognier is renowned for enticing aromas of apricot and blossom and irresistible exotic fruit that keep you returning for another glass. Originally used exclusively for top shelf Rhônes (Condrieu and Château Grillet), this lush flavoured grape is now flourishing further afield, in the sun blessed Aussie climate in particular. For four generations the fiercely independent Angove family (now headed by the founder'sgreat-grandson John) have proudly produced top quality, personality filled wines , an approach that has won them over 400 international awards in the last five years alone, including ,Winery of the Year 2008,. This opulent Viognier is supremely refreshing on its own and great with creamy sauced white meats and spicy Thai dishes.
