Viognier Wine Details
Price: $19.00 per bottle

Description: A little bit lighter than our 2006, possessing more floral aromas, reminiscent of rose and orange blossoms with a hint of lemon zest. On the palate, a strong citrus background with nice firm acidity making for a long lasting and mouth-filling finish. This wine is sure to be enjoyed with fresh fruit, pork or chicken, as well as, spicy food.

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.
