So often Viognier is over oaked and loses it wonderful delicate charm. Viognier "Le Verger” is completely unoaked and therefore bright with lovely aromas of peaches, pears and honeysuckle that lead to a palate that is fresh and crisp but packed with fruit.

Wine maker notes
After a short skin maceration and gentle pressing, the juice stays at 0°C for ten days before fermentation takes place in order to produce and enhance its fruity aromas. Fermentation is maintained at 13°C to express all the aromatic potential and to bring balance to the wine. After that, the wine stays on its lees to achieve body and optimal expression. No oak was used during the winemaking process.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 12.5%

Food pairing
Wonderful as an aperitif or with any fish or pasta dishes and excellent with a great chicken dish

Producer
Mel and Janie are from England but both now US citizens. Mel has been in the wine business ever since leaving school and he met Janie when they were only twelve and thirteen (she played the piano and he played the guitar!) and as they grew up together, they shared a passion for food and wine. They married at 19 and 20. The couple left England to live in France in 1970 and started a company called Master Wines and began selling little known French wines in the USA. Mel was a pioneer in bringing great wine values to the USA from France.
