Can you be hip and geeky at the same time? The answer is yes when it comes to Tangent Viognier! #抓住夏天的尾巴!

 

How is this hip?

Niven家族的帕拉貢(Paragon)和火峰(Firepeak)葡萄園擁有非常優秀的特質:SIP永續經營認證。酒莊確保這些葡萄園堅持謹慎且負責的態度,並將周圍環境納入考量。事實上,他們採用了罐裝的方式來包裝,不但對環境友善,也很容易運送。(當然罐裝酒只限於不需熟成的葡萄酒,也就是輕量紅酒或白酒)

But it’s also geeky because….

提到維歐尼(Viognier)葡萄就要說說它的歷史。它來自法國北隆河流域孔德里約(Condrieu)和格里葉堡(Château-Grillet)區,是當地的傳統白葡萄品種。這兩個產區的產量都很小,並只生產歐維尼葡萄酒。在北隆河最北端的羅地丘(Côte Rôtie)產區中,此品種的葡萄與希哈種在一起。原先,釀酒師為了增添奶油質地而加入維歐尼,但演變到現在,酒莊大部分都是因為芬芳的香味而增加維歐尼的比例。

就像前面說過的,維歐尼葡萄產量稀少,但又擁有超棒的香氣!盲飲時,我們聞到了濃郁的槴子花、橘皮和生薑的味道。這樣的組合非常特別,Angie能說其他的酒款也都沒辦法找到類似的。這款葡萄酒的酒體相當厚重,讓它成為秋季必飲酒款!現在就訂購,享受這支與秋天無比相搭的好酒吧!!

How is this hip?

The Niven family’s two estate vineyards, Paragon and Firepeak, have earned the Sustainability in Practice (SIPTM) Vineyard Certification. They have ensured that these vineyards have historically been farmed in a careful and responsible manner, taking into account all facets of the surrounding environment. In fact, they are one of the winery that's producing wines in a can to help save the environment and makes it easier to ship across the country (of course those type of bottle only works on light red, or white wines, wines that doesn’t need to be aged).

But it’s also geeky because….

Viognier is the traditional white grape of the Condrieu and Château-Grillet regions in the Northern Rhône of France. Both tiny appellations, Condrieu and Château-Grillet produce only Viognier. In the Côte Rôtie, the Northern Rhone’s most northern appellation, Viognier vines grow within vineyards of Syrah. The two varietals are harvested, crushed and fermented together. Producers originally liked the addition of Viognier’s creamy texture to soften the wines, but today it is used more because of its striking aroma.

As mentioned above, Viognier is a rare white grape that gives AMAZING floral note! In blind tasting we get lush gardenia flower, orange peel and ginger from this wine that's so unique you don't find it in any other wine. The body/mouthfeel of the wine is also very full, makes it a great fall weather white wine!
