Mont Rocher ‘Vieilles Vignes’ Viognier 2020

13.75

Description

The old vineyards for Mont Rocher are perched high in the dramatic hills and terraces above the Vallée d’Agly, in the eastern Pyrenees, with a unique character of their own. Famed black schist is interspersed with pockets of limestone from the higher slopes, combining richness and power with a fresher, more finely defined character.

The aromatic Viognier produces its aromas at a certain stage of maturation, the winemaker closely watching the process during August to choose the perfect day to harvest. The harvested grapes undergo a short skin-contact maceration before gentle pressing and fermentation at low temperature in stainless steel.

Let the temperature come up a little from fridge temperature for the full aromas to show. Apricot and honeysuckle aromas precede a rich, slightly oily palate supporting flavours of peach, honey and citrus peel, finishing dry, tangy and refreshing.
