An intense and seductive nose full of flowers such as rose and gardenia but also stonefruits such as peach and apricot. Notes of bergamot, lychee, vanilla, butter, and nuts complement the aromatic bouquet.
On the palate, it has medium to full body, balanced acidity, and buttery mouthfeel. Notes of flowers, apricot, peach, citron, butter, vanilla, toast, and nuts make up an impressive set. Spicy aftertaste that lasts. Viognier is a very special variety. Aromatic, oily, and complex but at the same time so sensitive and tricky in its cultivation. Apostolos Lykos, however, has shown that he can rise to the challenge. Viognier was his personal bet, and judging by the outcome, he pulled it off.
Low yields, endless attention from start to finish while fermentation and maturation in French oak Hermitage barrels for 4 months gave a wine destined for great pleasures, and demanding palates. Rich, buttery, uniquely aromatic and complex, it seduces from the first sip.
Pair it with a Moroccan tazin with chicken and apricots or buttery cheeses like Comté and enjoy the ultimate gastronomic experience.
With only 2.000 bottles, so you should probably hurry!
It has medium lemon color with greenish hues.
