Viognier, Paul Mas, Pays D’Oc, IGP, Languedoc, France, 2013, 13.5% abv, C$14

Looking for a wine that is easy to find, not terribly pricey, tasty and isn’t Sauvignon Blanc?  I thought so.mas

This Viognier could be the one.  It has a clear, medium lemon colour with light legs and aromas of minerals, apricots and pear with dry thyme and flowers.

The palate is dry but offers an impression of the slightest hint of residual sugar on account of the medium plus stone fruit – nectarine, apricot and summer peach – with lemon verbena and some floral hints.  Some crushed herbs and slight oak round out the palate.  Medium body and medium alcohol make this a nicely balanced, youthful and fresh wine with only a slight amount of bitterness on the average finish.

While it’s not terribly complex, it’s a good deal, is juicy and refreshing and has only very light oak.

WSET Good and went great with Saltspring Island Juliet cheese and cranberry-flax crackers.

    Why do I sense finding cranberry flax crackers is harder than finding this wine?
