Still the best white for under $10
Description: Gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features honeysuckle, apricots, peach pit, orange, ginger and anise. Medium to medium+ body with good acidity and a fairly long length.
Interesting Note: The 2014 is the best vintage I’ve tasted in Cono Sur’s Bicicleta Viognier. Taste double the price and gives you an indication what Condrieu taste like without spending $40+
Drink now or in the next 2 years on its own or pair it with Lionfish Ceviche

Peaches and lemon on the nose together with some floral notes. It has crisp acidity and is very fruity. Fantastic value.
A nod to viognier typicity with this fragrant nose. Fresh, floral, perfumed with apricot, orange and the faintest hint of tropical fruit. A creamy palate with milder to medium acidity and a slightly bitter late palate. Very good length. Try this with aromatic Thai food like a jasmine rice based lightly spiced dish - but not too spicy as the higher ABV will be exacerbated by the heat. Can't beat the value, and the consistency vintage to vintage is Swiss clockwork. Nov. 2014.
The 2015 vintage: Not at all over the top or blowsy. Ripe but crisp, not at all sweet (only 4g sugar/L according to Vintages website). Very good white and for $10, easy peasy decision.
The wine is dominated by stone fruit flavours and was too sweet for my liking. It reminded some around the table of a sweet Gewurztraminer. I can see how this wine could please some - just not me.
