Napa Valley Viognier

Napa Valley Viognier Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: “The pretty white floral nose on our 2004 Viognier is complimented by layers of fruit, including loquat and citrus, drawing you back again and again for another sip” boasts our winemaker Laurie Hook. Made in an exotic style, this Viognier has impressive intensity, with creamy texture.

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.
