ABOUT THE WINE
Situated in the Herault region that borders the Mediterranean Sea, the Domaine de Mont Auriol was once a Royal Estate and has belonged to the Sarret family since 1488 - a lineage now stretching back thirteen generations. Of the 350 hectares of the estate 110 hectares are planted with vines and the vineyard is spread across a chain of hills that face south over the Golfe du Lion. The vines are canopy trained and they employ no herbicides, preferring instead organic fertilizers and other sustainable, biodynamic practices. A mechanical harvest is carried out followed by total de-stemming and then maceration and fermentation in stainless steel, concrete and fibreglass vats. Their wine benefits further from being bottled at the domaine itself, travelling no further than their own on-site plant.

TASTING NOTES
This aromatic and medium-bodied white has beautiful golden yellow colour which gives way to a delicate and elegantly floral nose of dried apricot and white lilac. The palate bursts with ripe stone fruits such as peach and apricot as well as candied citrus fruits leading to a long, warm and dreamy finish of toasted almonds. .

FOOD PAIRING
Can be served with a smoked fish terrine, prawn risotto or light charcuterie. It will also partner softer cheeses and any white meat, fish or poultry that is served in a cream sauce.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A very easy style of viognier, fresh, fruity and perfect with lighter summery dishes.
