Mellasat Viognier 2018




These Viognier grapes were picked at optimum ripeness, and the resultant wine is barrel fermented and matured for eight months. This wine has prominent floral notes of orange blossom on the nose that leads through to peach and apricot flavours on the palate. The wine can also be enjoyed by itself now or cellared for mature drinking.

FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Chilled summer soups, grilled salmon and pan-fried seafood.
