Mabel's VCR - Viognier, Chardonnay, Riesling is a fascinating blend of
Sue-Ann vinified each wine separately, blending the three wines together just prior to bottling.
Mabel's VCR - Viognier, Chardonnay, Riesling is a wonderful food wine. On the nose and palate, there are suggestions of baked apple, preserved lemon, and just a hint of oak. The finish is dry, firm and distinctly lean, and a flinty or slate-like element runs throughout the wine.
