Viognier

Viognier Wine Details
Price: $24.00 per bottle

Description: Crisp grapefruity Livermore Valley Viognier judiciously folded into barrels of peachy-lychee and rich Cienega Valley wine is this lovely luscious libation within. Allow it to caress your tongue and awaken those taste buds. A true 10 on the yumminess scale! We are proud to offer this as Winemaker Tom Lane’s first full Crooked Vine release.

Varietal Definition
Viognier:
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.
