J Viognier, Hoot Owl Vineyard

J Viognier, Hoot Owl Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $30.00 per bottle

Description: This wine displays J’s signature style: the initial aromas are both fruity and floral (orange blossom, peaches, nectarine, honey), they lead the way to a lush and lively mid palate that begs one to complement it with food and finish with long peach, apricot vanilla and tangerine flavors with just enough acidity to cleanse the palate in preparation for the next sip. This wine is no wall-flower, it was kissed by the Sonoma sun and is as vibrant and outgoing as the people who made it. Cheers!

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.
