Domaine de Vedilhan (pronounced 'Domaine de Ved-ee-ohn') is the estate of the Fayet family, based in the village of Moussan close to Narbonne in Southern France.
Uniquely, a brook runs around the estate which provides much-needed water in this very hot climate, giving the wines their freshness and appeal.
Vines are managed using the 'lutte raisonnée' method and terroir is a combination of limestone, sand and sea shale, meaning the vines dig deep for their nutrients and thus produce excellent quality grapes.
The Viognier grapes for this French white wine were picked early and carefully selected and handled in the winery to maintain acidity and freshness.
This a clean, well balanced expression of Viognier. It has honeysuckle on the nose; it is richly textured and nicely balanced with flavours of apricots and a satisfying delicate bitterness on the finish.
