Drinks recommendation

The grapes for this Laurent Miquel Vendanges Nocturnes Viognier 2009 Pays d’Oc, South of France, are picked at night away from the fierce heat, to preserve its precious aromatics and freshness. It’s full of mouthwatering flavours of peaches and apricots, yet there is a hint of minerality and a crisp dry finish. A perfect foil to the chillies.
