Illahe's 100% Viognier pours a light lemon in the glass with gold highlights. The nose is powerfully aromatic with stunning aromas of wild flowers, nectarine, pears and fresh apricot. On the palate, an added mineral component comes across while the fruit veers towards an almost tropical tone while retaining the floral and stone fruit nuances.
Illahe displays wonderful freshness and energy: this is not a rich, concentrated Condrieu-style Viognier, but rather one that showcases how crisp and clean the grape can be while still delivering incredible complexity and depth of flavor. Enjoy with a chicken salad with peaches, apricots or mangos, or broiled scallops with a ginger and coconut sauce.
