Carinae, Viognier, Mendoza, Argentina, 2020

Viognier is much better suited to the heat in Argentina than Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. From 15 year old vines, this is a well-balanced example, showing a heady mix of jasmine, lime, stone fruit and grapey (Muscat-like) characters. Well-textured but with crisp bite, this makes a lovely aperitif but is equally at home with spicy dishes. Now-2022

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
