Massena The Surly Muse Viognier 2010, Barossa Valley, SA

Simple Palates Seriously Massena Surly Muse Viognier 2010 korean kimchi

Purchased from Cloudwine $20. Pulled this last bottle out from my fridge today. Current vintage 2013. Made from 100% Viognier, the Massena Surly Muse 2010 is well ripened with intense notes of peaches, poached pears, honeysuckle and a whiff of fennel seed. The medium-bodied palate has a great concentration of citrusy / mandarin peel flavors with some silkiness to the texture and a long finish. Drink now. 91.

Went really well with my spicy starter of kimchi on a broth of wild grains.
