Food Pairings for Massena Viognier Barossa Valley the Surly Muse
Nose: apricots, peaches, lychee, aromatic and delicate. Palate: sharp, fresh peach, apricot. Minerally acid, sharp and lively. A beautiful fresh, lively wine that is great with food. Quite a different style of viognier than you might be used to, here the winemakers attempted to avoid the ripe and potentially over-flaccid flavours sometimes associated with viognier. Instead, a more taut, aromatic style was achieved.
Viognier has found its current recognition in being a 'muse' to shiraz wines, adding its unique aromatic lift and richness when added in tiny quantities. When some Viognier became available from grapes to be co-fermented with Shiraz, we jumped at the opportunity to explore a new wine style to Massena.
