A wine with orchard blossom, apricot, lemon rind and peach that fill the glass. Secondary creamy notes of butter, honey and
vanilla along with baked pear complete the aroma profile.
The flavours are similar with great length and richness, vanilla, tree fruits and spring orchard blossoms when entering the
palate. This Viognier Marsanne Roussanne is big, round, fresh and is very full on the palate. The influence of oak is noticeable on the
palate with sweetness, integrated soft tannin texture, creaminess and vanilla flavours. The light oak influence is balanced and integrated
with the perfume notes and flavours of peach, pear, apricot, and ginger spice. A pleasant and opulent wine that is fruit-driven with a rich
mouthfeel and big body and weight on the mid-palate. The balanced acidity carries the wine through to a long finish with the taste of
apricots that lingers. This Viognier- Marsanne-Roussanne blend is very food friendly and pairs well with game birds and risotto.
