Brimming with expressive aromas of peach and melon, the flavours are further substantiated by creaminess that almost hints at melon mousse sprinkled with lime zest. Finishes clean with flair of balanced acidity. Serve with simply grilled seafood with fresh peach salsa.

Additional Tasting Notes
This is the third vintage of Viognier from Lariana and it confirms the winery’s excellence with this varietal. This is an exquisitely balanced wine where the 13.9% alcohol is kept in check by the flavours, the texture and the refreshing acidity. The wine has aromas of lime and white peach with a floral note reminiscent of violets. On the palate, there are flavours of lime and melon with a hint of spice on the long, refreshing finish. 93 points.
