Daisy Creek Viognier

Daisy Creek Viognier Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: “produced by RoxyAnn Winemaker Gus Janeway for Jacksonville’s Daisy Creek Vineyard, This rich, full-bodied Viognier hits lots of ripe, complex notes. It displays wonderful perfumed and floral aromas, as well as generous layers of apricot, pear, and honeysuckle flavors that glide across the palate, finishing with a smooth, creamy, buttery texture. This is an exotic mouthfilling wine that will nicely complement shellfish aswell as sweet spicy foods such as Thai coconut curry.”

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.
