Viognier

Variety

Viognier

Production Area

Sicily Region - Valle del Belice

Soil

Alluvial and deep brown soils, medium texture, sandy-clay composition, high content of organic matter. Mediterranean climate.

Winemaking

Viognier specifically selected from vineyards at elevation with east facing slopes to minimize exposure to the hot afternoon sun. Cold skin contact at 4°C prior to pressing and fermentation at cold temperatures to maintain fruit freshness and varietal character.

Tasting notes

Brilliant yellow straw with olive hues. Lifted tropical melon and candied fruits are supported by intense mango, kiwi and honeysuckle on the palate. The natural acidity provides structure and freshness to the complex array of sweet tropical fruits.

Pairing

This Viognier is well recommended with raw seafood such as sushi, oysters and prawn salad. To be matched as well with fresh cheeses and spicy bread.
