Baron de Badassière, Viognier IGP Côtes de Thau, 2018 - 75cl
White wine from the Côtes de Thau, France.
Baron de Badassière is from the Picpoul de Pinet region of the Languedoc, near the coast of the South of France. The name of the wine refers to the Badassière vineyard which lies near the small town of Pomérols. In the 18th century, the vineyard belonged to Baron Charles Emmanuel, a colourful character who was rumoured to be the illegitimate son of King Louis XV. The wines are made exclusively for Liberty Wines by New Zealand winemaker Graeme Paul, with consultant Matt Thomson, at the Cave de Pomérols cooperative where the Vignes de L'Eglise range is also produced.
The grapes for this wine come from selected vineyards around the Etang de Thau and Picpoul area. The vines are planted on sandy Pliocene soils. The grapes are both machine and hand-harvested.
The grapes were macerated on their skins for several hours before pressing. The must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 15°C. No malolactic fermentation took place and the wine was bottled early to retain freshness and delicate aromatics.
This Viognier is made in a fresh, modern style. It offers subtle aromas of almond and honey on the nose. Rounded on the palate, with guava and apricot flavors, it is balanced by a refreshing acidity on the finish.
Viognier pairs well with grilled seafood; it's also a good match for most foods flavored with fruit salsas.
