Wine Review – Asda Viognier

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!
