We were buying a few household items in Asda recently and we though we would try a few of their wines. We plumped for the Viognier 2015 from their extra special range and I was really hoping to be surprised by it.
The label was traditional stylish, making it look like a wine you might want to buy. The smell was very light and what I can only really describe as ‘white winey’!
Moving on to the taste, without food it was simply sharp and bitter and not what I would expect from a Viognier. We then had tomato and basil pasta with it and although it was slightly improved, it was still too sharp.
Unfortunately the wine was a disappointment, both as a Viognier and as a general white wine. I will not explore this avenue again!
