Pretty Good

The Hermit Crab Marsanne Viognier is a fusion of 72% Viognier grapes with 26% Marsanne grapes. These grapes were crushed, and then transferred to stainless steel for basket pressing. The resulting blend flaunts a bright straw colour with golden tints. Candied ginger, stone fruit and floral aromas combine with exotic scents of almond, green mango and hay, to offer a luxurious bouquet. The sweet and medium bodied palate is supported by fine acidity to provide a mild pithy texture. This wonderful white blend ends in a spicy, yet dry and refreshing finale. It tastes great with ginger and scallion crab, or endive salad with blue cheese.
