Chardonnay is not one of my top 5 favourites of white wine so it was interesting to taste it mixed with Viognier, a wine I know little about. The combination was great, and not too over powering with flavour, even though the alcohol percentage was high for a white wine.
I shared this wine with some friends over a Chilli followed by cheeses and as we chatted all felt this was a good smooth easy drinking wine which would withstand most kinds of food flavours. 7.5/10 from us!
We did not put the wine in the fridge for too long as we did not want it over chilled so as to keep the subtle chardonnay peachy flavour. It has a crisp acidity and as the label says tropical fruit aromas and flavours of citrus and lime, delicate on the palate.
The label is simple but eye catching and it states the winery name. Brewery Hill Winery is in the McLaren Vale Wine Region of Australia, on the south coast not too far from Adelaide.
I have been inspired and will be putting some bottles of Viognier on my shopping list.
