The Vibe: Viognier, white, full-medium, dry, honey, biscuit, oaty, natural, citrus blossom, minerality.   

Friends Would Say: He’s a big player in the white wine world, coming from the Cotes de Rhone region which makes some of the best whites on the market. You might have heard some big names like Hermitage and Cote Rotie being thrown around the table, well this is the audience he keeps. Although Rhone wines are known mainly for reds, Viognier grape do very well here. An elegant straw colour in the glass with a bold full texture. This bottle has a zesty opening with sharp minerality falling off to more tropical stone fruit phase and finally ending the evening with a lasting honey dew, pine nut nightcap. Expect this wine to offer more as you adjust to the natural wine quirkiness. 

The Banter: An unofficial natural wine, everything being made in a hands-off, natural way - conscientious farming, no yeasts, no enzymes, no new oak and no SO2 before bottling. The wine makers behind this beast are called Estezargues and have for many years stood out as a co-op with an artisanal approach to winemaking making some of the best value wines in the Rhône Valley.

The First Date?: This bottle is a bit like when one of your friends sets you up for a blind date. They tell you amazing things about them but somehow you just can’t help thinking it’s going to be a disaster! But you take yourself along anyway, at first your not blown away but by the end of the evening you really understood why your friends said you should meet, it might not be happily ever after but you're DEFINITELY going to stay friends! Say hello to mr Plein Sud.
