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.

This is a geat surprise. The wine has a pleasant sweet apricot flavor which is maintained to the finish. No sugary residue. This wine is perfect as an after dinner refresher, served slightly chilled. It's good to find nice Viognier wine outside of Virginia.
