Mill Road Viognier

Mill Road Viognier Wine Details

Description: The seductive charm of the Mill Viognier offers robust floral aromatics give way to rich, mouthwatering flavors of tropical lichi, ripe mango, a hint of candied ginger and finishes with light notes of roasted nuts and bright acidity. This exotic wine offers a nice balance between varietal character and well-integrated wood character. It's rich and fat, with a long finish that is ready to enjoy now, but its lushness never leads to heaviness, and it has the vitality to see it through a year or two of additional keeping.

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.
