Six Hats Viognier offers a fine reward for the white wine lover seeking to venture beyond Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. The Viognier grape varietal is most famous in Condrieu, in the northern Rhone of France, but South Africa offers outstanding wines at a fraction of the price of Condrieu. And because Six Hats is Fair Trade Certified, your purchase supports the people whose hard work is so beautifully expressed in this bottle. Fair Trade promotes decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Citrusdal Wines launched the Six Hats range in 2009, the six hats signifying the principles of partnership, change, potential, equity, dignity and sustainability. Bravo!
Six Hats Viognier is straw to light gold in color with a gorgeous nose of dried peaches, apricots, orange blossoms and honeysuckle. It is medium in body with a rich mouthfeel and flavors of peach, apricot and mango. Well balanced to enjoy over the next 3-5 years, the wine is long and rich on the finish.
Enjoy Six Hats Viognier as an aperitif wine and with grilled snapper with fruit salsa, fried oysters, stir-fry vegetables and spicy Thai dishes.
