Pure Luck Wine Details

Description: Our 100% viognier wine comes for our vineyard. It has no residual sugar and partial malolactic fermentation to give it a crisp taste. The apricot, pear, and citrus bouquet highlight this refreshing white wine.

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.
