Viognier Geddes Mountain

Viognier Geddes Mountain Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle


Varietal Definition
The most acclaimed white wine grape from France's Rhône Valley, Viognier is a highly aromatic varietal, with a flavor profile that could include peach, apricot, nectarine, lichee, musk and flower blossom. The heady perfume of this varietal is one of its trademarks, although its flavors are sometimes problematic in matching with food. However, it does well with lobster, crab and moderately flavored fish. Use it as an apéritif as an alternative to Chardonnay. The "Rhône Rangers" in California have done an excellent job promoting this varietal.

I hope I can find some to buy. I had the Viognier Reserve last week in the Black Bear Bistro in Warrenton, and I have never tasted such a good one. Please tell me where it is sold in Fredericksburg, VA. Thanks so much. Jane
