Deetlefs, Signature Viognier 2019 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Breedekloof
' Deep and mature nose with tropical fruit, honey and rose water. Full and ripe palate bursting with fruit and spice.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 94/100 (Silver)
'Picked pretty ripe, which can be risky where a low-acid variety like Viognier is concerned, but this has commendable balance and freshness for a wine with 14.4% alcohol. Peach and apricot fruit are complemented by subtle oak influence and a spicy nutmeg and crème fraîche finish. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100
'Light lemon yellow colour. Concentrated nose of apricot, honey, jasmine and spice. Extremely rich taste with fruity apricot, lemon and orange marmalade complexity. Long soft concentrated finish.' – Winemaker
Alc: 14.4% | RS: 4.1 g/L
