Spice Route Viognier Swartland 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is sourced exclusively from small parcels within Malmesbury, judicously selected for the highest quality fruit with the best aroma / flavour balance. It possesses a forward, almost promiscuous nose of white flower petals, dried apricot and ripe red apples. The palate is weighty, rounded and mouth filling without being over bearing due to a crisp vein of citrus fruit amongst the apricot, mango and peach fruits. It finishes rich and rounded, a great food wine. This is a good choice where a weighty palate is required without oak - try it with cajun spiced salmon fillets, any chargrilled or barbecued red or white meats or roasted white meats such as an apricot stuffed rack of pork or brie and lemon stuffed poussin. Will also complement dishes based around pulses or nuts.
