Review: 2010 Estampa Viognier/Chardonnay

 Chile has long been a source of some of my favourite value wines and at $15 this palate-pleasing white is a massive over-achiever.

The wine showcases the best of both grape varieties used, with the Viognier lending beautiful aromatics and a succulent mouth-feel while the un-oaked Chardonnay adds freshness and vibrancy.

The nose on this wine is outstanding! It’s like diving face first into a pile of fresh ripe fruit with aromas of apricot nectar, tangerine, ripe pineapple and golden apple.

On the palate this is mouth watering and refreshing with the tropical and citrus fruit flavours carrying through from the nose. Each time I took a sip my taste-buds immediately craved another.

If you’re looking for a reliable, affordable and delicious white to stock the fridge with this Summer look no further! Try this with a spring mix mango salad or a watermelon gazpacho.

Cheers,

Jesse
