Anakena, Single Vineyard Viognier 2009, Chile
This is the most perfumed and intense of Viogniers, and delivers the goods vintage after vintage. From Anakena in the Rapel Valley, something of a Viognier specialist, it has a glorious nose
offering a heady melange of powdered ginger, flowers and the downy skins of ripe peaches. On the palate a massive burst of flavour, with apricot and tangy orange flooding across the palate.
Delicious aperitif wine, but match it to
Thai or Chinese food, creamy risottos or pastas. £7.99, Halifax Wine Company, Hawkshead Wines. Note too that this is the same wine sold by Marks & Spencer online wine store as the 'DOMA' Viognier from Chile at £8.99.
