Quick Facts

A pretty unique Southern Rhone white, made from Viognier with a tiny splash of Roussanne. Very elegant expression reflecting the high altitude vineyards from where it was grown.

The Wine’s Story

This is a versatile and food friendly white wine, made from the aromatic Viognier variety. A dollop of Roussanne adds mid-palate width and hints of spice. Grown at 600+ metres above sea level, the windy conditions give grapes with high acidity, resulting in elegant wines. La Borry also has the advantage of a modest price tag, meaning that this is one of our everyday drinking wines.
