Tepusquet Vineyard Viognier

Tepusquet Vineyard Viognier Wine Details

Description: The wine displays citrus blossoms and pink grapefruit in the nose. On the palate, the wine has rich tangerine, lemon-lime, and subtle peach flavors, which complement a nicely textured mind-palate. The crisp, lingering finish has well-balanced citrus and vanilla flavors.

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.
