2018 ‘Grillet’ 100% Viognier (in acacia)
If Condrieu was less expensive.
I’m a sucker for white wines and Rhône whites are right up there at the top of my list. In the world of fine wine, I think Viognier is one of the most misunderstood grapes.

You only think that you don’t like Viognier.
This is such a great wine, and I rarely use the word ‘great’ with any of my own wines.
