DRINK OF THE WEEK
15th April 2024
Pierre Jaurant Viognier
Aldi 5.49
Drinker Rating 90

Viognier seems to be getting more and more popular and this has to be a good thing. Probably best known for it's role in fuller bodied wines this versatile white grape is capable of producing a really interesting array of wine styles. It's low yielding and takes some care to grow well, but when it is it produces wines with amazing aromatics and depth. In short viognier is the new chardonnay!

This one from Aldi is perfectly crafted and had bundles of fruit on the nose, peach, apricot and banana balanced by a fresh racy acidity on the palate.

Great quality at a fabulous price.

Cheers!
