The wonderful Viognier grape is typically low yielding (less berries mean more concentrated flavour), so it tends to be expensive to produce, and therefore to buy.
As such we were extremely lucky to find Domaine de l’Arjolle. The winemakers at l’Arjolle have blended this rich, waxy, fruit dominated grape with another cool climate import, vibrant, high acidity Sauvignon Blanc to stunning effect.
These usually stand-alone northern grapes work perfectly together in the southern climate to make a wine that is fresh with apples, honey, hazelnuts and bright spring blossoms on the nose. And with a palate that is textured, deliciously waxy and yet utterly vibrant, with light fruits and a lovely acidity.
Glorious with a Thai Green Curry, or richer Mediterranean fish dishes.
