2021 Domaine de Vedilhan 'Serica' Viognier
All good wine is made as much in the vineyard as it is in the cellar. This is especially true of Serica Viognier, where the grower nurtures his Viognier vines producing healthy grapes at optimum ripeness.
Domaine de Vedilhan (pronounced 'Domaine de Ved-ee-ohn') is the estate of the Fayet family based in the village of Moussan, close to Narbonne.
Uniquely a brook runs around the estate which provides much needed water in this very hot climate, giving the wines their freshness and appeal.
For ‘Serica’, Viognier grapes are picked at optimum ripeness with two-thirds barrel-fermented in mature French oak to bring subtle texture and richness. The wine is aptly named after the Latin name for silk, 'Serica'. In the 14th century, silk production or sericulture was as widespread in this region as viticulture.
Tasting Note: Bitter-sweet 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.
Origin: Languedoc, France
