R 195.00

An opulent, barrel fermented Viognier with a typical light straw colour. Initial top notes of citrus blossom develop into a complex melange of almond, nougat and candied fruit on the nose. This medium bodied wine has an elegant, creamy mid palate followed by a lingering sensation of lemon meringue and violets. Serve chilled and enjoy the evolution of flavours in the glass.
