Viognier Wine Details
Price: $17.00 per bottle

Description: Viognier is Laurel Gray’s premier white wine. Primary fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks and the wine is aged for 9 months producing a youthful and refreshing dry white. The wine has complex aromas and flavors of apricots, peaches, tropical fruits, and honeysuckle. This wine works wonderfully with soft cheese, fruity salads, and grilled fish.

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.
