Tasting notes

Pale gold in colour with aniseed-coloured highlights. The nose is delicate with notes of bergamot and flint stone. On the palate, the wine is very fresh on entry, dominated by the typical Viognier aromas. On the mid-palate, there is good balance between the acidic tension associated with its terroir of origin and the natural full body of the varietal and its ageing. The finish is savoury, bringing out the rustic and mineral overtones.
