Bedell Cellars VIOGNIER

Bedell Cellars VIOGNIER Wine Details
Price: $29.00 per bottle

Description: The Bedell Cellars 2003 Viognier is one of only a handful to be found in the Eastern United States. It has delicate aromas of melon, pineapple and honeysuckle and a rich mouthfeel.

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.
