Vina Valdivieso Reserva Viognier 2009 (Sagrada Familia)

Tasted 8/9/11. 14.5% ABV. About £9.99 UK retail. Presented by winemaker Brett Jackson to the Chelsea and Fulham Wine Society at My Dining Room, SW6.
A really pleasing wine, voted best white of the night in a straw poll. Medium yellow colour. Floral nose with dried apricots, almonds and a hint of tropical fruits. The palate reminded me of dried apricots and almonds. Lovely balance of fruit and fresh acidity. This is one of the best south American viogniers I have had this year. From 2011, 16/20
