So often Viognier is over oaked and loses it wonderful delicate charm. Viognier "Le Verger” is completely unoaked and therefore bright with lovely aromas of peaches, pears and honeysuckle that lead to a palate that is fresh and crisp but packed with fruit.
After a short skin maceration and gentle pressing, the juice stays at 0°C for ten days before fermentation takes place in order to produce and enhance its fruity aromas. Fermentation is maintained at 13°C to express all the aromatic potential and to bring balance to the wine. After that, the wine stays on its lees to achieve body and optimal expression. No oak was used during the winemaking process.
Wonderful as an aperitif or with any fish or pasta dishes and excellent with a great chicken dish
