Viognier from Mendoza with vibrant and pronounced aromas. Excellent quality: 92/100

Lovely notes of honeysuckle and stone fruits on the nose. Made in a really fresh, lean, aromatic style. This wine is so good it leaves no room for any other Argentine Viognier in our portfolio.

“Perfumed nose with lilies and green apples. Minerally too with a nicely dense, full bodied palate of mint character.” – 92 / 100 JamesSuckling.com (2013 vintage)

Description

About this wine

Viognier (pronounced “vee-own-yay”) is a full-bodied white wine that originated in southern France. This Argentinian viognier from Atamisque won a number of awards due to its remarkable quality.

In Argentina, high altitude is a key indicator of quality. Grapes for this wine were hand-harvested in a vineyard located in San Jose, Mendoza, at 1,300 metres above sea level. Dry alluvial soil with rock foundation and top layers of sand-textured earth is precision-fed with water using a drip irrigation system.

The premium quality of this wine is achieved with a meticulous production method:

  • Grapes are picked by hand at the end of March in 18kg cases.
  • Whole bunches are pressed at cool temperature.
  • Flow by gravity, without using pumps.
  • Fermentation takes 22 days in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Enchanting golden yellow in the glass.

Nose: Pronounced aromas of peach, lilies, green apple, honey.

    I’m not really a white drinker but tasting this reminded me of how good a white wine can be. All the minerally freshness, a perfect accompaniment to the sea bass.
