About the Wine
This white wine is made by Rare Vineyards in Languedoc-Roussillon. Lovely fruit-driven flavours for rich seafood, tasty chicken or spicy pork dishes. It is created with mosty Marsanne grapes. You shouldn't find this wine anywhere else, it is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by LGI (Viticulteurs de L'Union).
Viognier produces aromatic and sometimes exotic wines, it may be thought of as a variety that offers some the approachable rich body nature of a Chardonnay, but with a more aromatic fruity character of peach and apricot. Now widely planted, almost always dry in style.
This wine grape is considered the most popular variety of white wine grape planted in the region of Northern Rhone. It possesses a number of rich qualities with rich textures and an enhancing flavour.

Most of France enjoyed a long, glorious warm summer, which set wineries up for a great 2018 vintage. A welcome relief from the previous one which was the smallest since World War II.Explore France
