Darioush Signature Viognier Napa Valley

Darioush Signature Viognier Napa Valley Wine Details
Price: $34.00 per bottle

Description: True to the varietal, our 2004 Signature Viognier possesses abundant floral aromatics of orange blossom, honeysuckle and fresh apricots. Rich and concentrated flavors of ripe white peaches and Anjou pears are complemented by hints of toasted walnuts and creamy vanilla bean. We enjoy this wine upon release when its bright fruit and aromas are most vibrant.

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.
