Domaine de Vedilhan Serica Viognier, Pays d’Oc
Elaborately textured, full-flavoured Viognier. Crystalised orange peel aromas with powerful yet retrained flavours on the palate. Barrel-fermentation brings subtle texture and richness rather than a dominant oaky flavour, leaving rich stone fruits to shine through. The finish is complex, satisfying and well-balanced.
Vines are managed using the ‘lutte raisonnée’ method and terroir is a combination of limestone, sand and sea shale, meaning the vines dig deep for their nutrients and thus produce excellent quality grapes. For ‘Serica’, Vioginer grapes are picked at optimum ripeness with two-thirds barrel-fermented in mature French oak to bring subtle texture and richness.
