Rose Quartz Viognier 2019

TASTING NOTE (as at 1 February 2021)
Bright pale gold colour. Highly aromatic, with aromas of white peach and jasmine. Tropical flavours abound on the palate with subtle overtones of oak, and a certain minerality, followed by a richly integrated mouth-feel of pineapple, clementine, quince and peach. Soft, fresh, medium to full bodied; an ideal accompaniment to fish, warm salads and poultry dishes.
