Riebeek Viognier
Riebeek Cellars
South Africa - Western Cape - Coastal Region - Swartland

This unwooded style of Viognier offers an accessible wine with ample body. The color is a brilliant green-gold and the style is dry but fruity. The perfume of a floral bouquet greets the nose and follows through with lovely tropical flavors in a light but lingering palate.

Coastal Region - Swartland
Wine Type
100% Viognier
Free run juice was used. After settling and acid adjustment, it was inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation temperature stayed between 13-14 degree Celsius. Wine was left on lees for few months prior to bottling to enhance the flavor.

Slightly chilled. Lovely with most entrees - from crisp salads to creamy soups. Beautiful with chicken and fish - whether served grilled or in a creamy sauce.

2014 Riebeek Cellars Viognier - ** - Washington Post

wplogo"This is a luscious viognier, featuring a deep yellow color, that explodes with juicy peach and honeysuckle flavors. Viognier can easily become flabby, but this one manages to keep its figure within bounds. Not for aging, I recommend this for immediate, lip-smacking enjoyment. ABV: 13 percent. - David McIntyre"
