“Diemersfontein Viognier features apricots, orange peel, citrus and biscuit aromas explode in the glass and then follow through to the palate for a rich mouthfeel with a lingering orange marmalade aftertaste. Grapes were harvested very ripely.
Viognier is a food wine and complements a whole array of dishes. It loves spice and would be a great match for mild, creamy curries and spicy noodle dishes like Pad Thai. It also goes very well with a Chicken tagine or poached Salmon.
The Diemersfontein estate has been in the Sonnenberg family since 1940. First bought by David’s grandfather and then passed down to his father, Richard – who planted the first vines in 1970. Since then, the vineyard has been responsible for truly exceptional wines. This includes the wooded Pinotage which won the Paul Sauer award in 2001.
