Another fine value from Charles Back at Fairview. This viognier is varietally true to type with the expected peach...

This is quite powerful, firm viognier with lifted aromas of star fruit, kiwi, spearmint with a touch of French oak...

Very nice. A bit oaky, but lots of really approachable fruit flavours with a rich texture and nice long finish. Something on the nose and palate really reminds me of those Allen's sour peach candies, in a good way. 14.5% alcohol, but balanced nicely and you'd really never guess. I like this one much better than the Vin de Pays Viogniers you see for around the same price.
