Bottle Description

A floral and intense Viognier from the La Agricola Company founded by Alberto Zuccardi in 1963 and located at Maipu in Argentina's Mendoza Valley. Today the business is run by Alberto's son, Jose-Alberto Zuccardi, who has transformed the estate into one of the leading producers in South America. Mendoza is actually defined as high desert (rainfall hardly ever exceeds 200mm.annum) so irrigation is vital and is provided when the snow caps of Andes mountains melt in springtime. This brings unique and particular characteristics to the vineyards such as a wide temperature range, marked seasons, great luminosity and a lengthy period of maturation. This 100% Viognier is dry and refreshing and works well with spicy cuisine. On the palate, medium-bodied with a creamy texture and intense flavours of peach and canteloupe melon leading to a crisp and spicy finish. A very food friendly wine. Try with macademia chicken with an orange and ginger sauce, pan-fried scallops with celeriac, apple and hazelnuts or Thai green chicken curry.
