Gerovassiliou Viognier

my Big Fat Greek Viognier

It’s too fat for our wine rack: the heavyweight bottle has positively Herculean proportions.  Gratifyingly, the wine inside it is cast in the same heroic mould.  Viognier is no shrinking violet, and this one is absolutely bursting with fruit, flowers and spice.
And what a nose!  Any hopeful bridesmaid trying to catch a bouquet with this much in it would be floored under the weight.  This is not a wine in any danger of being left on the shelf.
Despite all that wow factor, this pale beauty is surprisingly elegant and can be served quite cool: 10°C to 12°C.
Viognier can be tricky to match with food.  Fortunately this one is lovely on its own, but try marrying it with richly-flavoured seafood like crab or lobster, especially in Asian-spiced dishes.  Prawns with ginger and spring onion would make a perfect match.

More tasting


Big oaked whites should usually be served only just cool, but Viognier likes to be chilled.  Serve this one quite cool, at 10°C to 12°C.  Give the pouch four minutes out of the fridge to warm up before pouring.
Viognier’s low acidity and intense perfume can make it quite tricky to match with food, but this one’s zippy freshness and elegance make it quite food-friendly.  You need bold flavours in the dish, though; this wine will stomp all over delicate white fish.
Try stronger-flavoured shellfish like lobster and crab, especially in Asian dishes whose spicy fragrance is mirrored by the wine.  That old Chinese restaurant favourite, prawns with ginger and spring onion, will work beautifully – and you can probably get it delivered.
On a different tack, this wine is also a great foil for more strongly-flavoured vegetables in salads, like hard-to-match asparagus.
