Viognier Wine Details
Price: $23.00 per bottle

Description: Narmada Winery’s 2009 Viognier is a dry white wine made from 100% viognier grapes. Steel fermented to emphasize the floral aromatics and fruit flavors of the viognier variety. Citrus fruits give way to melon flavors on the finish to make this a complete white wine that is always a Virginia wine lover’s favorite.

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.
