Tasting Notes

Complex aromas of winter florals and ripe apricots with savoury notes of sandalwood. The full palate has a soft and creamy texture rich with apricot, spice and a touch of vanilla bean. It is bright throughout with natural acidity and finishes with fresh navel orange citrus and fine length. Adding to the scarceness of Churton's small production Viognier, following this exciting vintage they were unable to produce a 2017 or 2018 Viognier due to seasonal variations.
