This lavish aromatic grape is always associated with apricot flavours, and Lemon Hill Viognier doesn’t disappoint! We love the fact there’s so much fruit packed into just one mouthful, and it’s never less than utterly moreish. Elegantly unoaked too.
"Yummy. Definitely not a quaffer! You need to savour this one"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
Fifty years ago there were 14 hectares of Viognier vines left in the world. Hidden away in France’s Rhône Valley, the Viognier wines of Condrieu and Château Grillet were available only to a lucky few. Happily, a handful of California wineries decided to breathe new life into this variety – Viognier needs a lot of sun so this was the ideal place – and today it’s a global success. Winemaker Gloria Mercado-Martin has a reputation for her fine sparkling and white wines, so it came as no surprise to us that she’d had a hit with this grape. ‘Wine Region of the Year’ Lodi has the right amount of sun and sandy soils for Viognier to thrive, and Gloria keeps it pure and unoaked for maximum freshness. Chill down and it’s perfect with spicy Thai food.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
