Although this wine aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, Saronsberg strives to produce a wine that is still lively and fresh with varied and delicate flavours, showcasing the subtleties and finesse that Viognier is capable of.
The farm Saronsberg is one of the largest in the Tulbagh Valley. The Cellar is one of the most modern in South Africa, with the latest techniques and winemaking methods being used.
