Guy Drew Vineyards Viognier Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: This Viognier is clear and golden in color. It has flowery aromas with full bodied and rich mouth-feel, flavors of peach, pear, tropical fruit and a hint of spice. Great with Thai, Chinese or Mexican dishes, salty cheeses, strong flavored fish dishes, pork, chicken and fresh fruit.

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.
