McPherson Viognier

McPherson Viognier Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: West Texas is an ideal place to produce classic French Rhone varietal grapes and our McPherson Cellars Viognier is a wonderful example. It is a superb alternative to Chardonnay for those who enjoy complex, full-bodied white wines. This handcrafted wine is dry, soft and rich, with aromas of pear, apple, citrus and tropical fruit intermingled with slight hints of oak.

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.
