Vina Robles Viognier, Huerhuero

Vina Robles Viognier, Huerhuero Wine Details

Description: Pale gold with green hints. This wine is fresh and bright with notes of tropical fruits such as pineapple and hints of citrus peel, orange blossom and ginger. It is broad, creamy and full bodied on the palate yet remains fresh and well balanced. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits, particularly pineapple are complemented by a long clean finish.

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.
