Babylonstoren Viognier 2018

Babylonstoren Viognier 2018

Light yellowish tint. Showcase layers of fresh peaches with dried apricot and blossom aromas. The wood contributes to depth, although not strongly noticeable. The mouth-feel is round and creamy from the 30% well integrated French oak (7 months). A floral nose and lime zest finish complete the perfect balance.

Matched best with complex flavours like shellfish dishes or any type of spicy or curry dish.
