Viognier Wine Details
Price: $12.99 per bottle

Description: The Viognier is a delicate, graceful wine that exudes ripe peach and pear fruit flavors with a crisp, refreshing finish. This wine definitely excites the taste buds and is a crowd favorite. It is a terrific food wine that pares well with everything from seafood and salads to dishes with a touch of spice.

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.
