Domaine de Vedilhan Serica Viognier 2018

France / Southern France

Andy's Tasting Notes

A rich white yet never heavy or cloying, with crisply textured orange, ginger, jasmine and peach.  A lovely creamy overtone yet beautifully fresh and lingering. Serve cold, but definitely don’t over-chill this wine.

Wine maker production notes “All good wine is part-made in the vineyard as well as in the cellar. This is especially true of Serica Viognier, where the grower nurtures his Viognier vines producing healthy grapes at optimum ripeness. Domaine de Vedilhan (pronounced ‘Domaine de Ved-ee-ohn’) is the estate of the Fayet family based in the village of Moussan close to Narbonne. Uniquely a brook runs around the estate which provides much needed water in this very hot climate, giving the wines their freshness and appeal. Vines are managed using the ‘lutte raisonnée’ method and terroir is a combination of limestone, sand and sea shale, meaning the vines ‘dig deep’ for their nutrients and thus produce excellent quality grapes.”

Elaborately textured, full-flavoured Viognier.  The wine is aptly named after the Latin name for silk, ‘Serica’. In the 14th century, silk  production or sericulture was as widespread in this region as viticulture
