Food Pairings for Domaine Saint Ferréol Viognier Vin de Pays d'Oc
Lovely complexity and a richness that is perfectly balanced by the acidity. Nutty with hints of apricots, orange pith, peach blossom and vanilla. Smooth and highly drinkable. Alcohol 12.5%. No flabbiness, no excessive floweriness just excellent poise, balance and flavour. While others have compared this to the best Condrieu Viogniers it doesn't quite have the depth and texture of the great Rhone wines, but as it stands it is a stonker and well worth the eleven quid. http://www.spittoon.biz/domaine-saint-ferreol-viognier.html Excellent with Rosemary Seared Scallops With Pancetta, Salad and Hazelnuts http://www.spittoonextra.biz/rosemary_seared_scallops_with.html
Wine has been produced at Siant Ferreol for over 150 years. Specially selected, fully ripened Viognier grapes were chilled then pressed before temperature controlled fermentation in oak barrels. Frequent stirring (battonage) has encouraged the development of a smooth, lingering, complex flavour. The aroma is fruity with a hint of vanilla and the flavour has apricot and honey notes with subdued acidity. Superb on its own as well as with white meats, fish, cheese and desserts.
