Avontuur Above Royalty Natural Sweet Viognier 2018 - SOLD OUT

Aroma: Tropical fruit dominate with litchi, guava and pineapple showing through.
Flavour: Pink grapefruit gives acidity which balances beautifully with the vanilla on the creamy palate. It has a full mouthfeel due to the riper profile and slightly higher alcohol % than the previous vintage.

Serve chilled with light, fruity desserts like pannacotta or pavlova. The low alcohol makes it excellent for lunch-time sipping.
