Viognier Tio Pancho Ranch Vineyards

Viognier Tio Pancho Ranch Vineyards Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: From our estate vineyard! This wine has our signature dried apricots, melons, honeysuckle and orange blossoms. The rich fruit lasts in the mouth and bursts with a clean finish. Great balance and harmony. Serve with oysters or shrimp, the salad course, or to wow your guests with hors d’oerves.

Varietal Definition
Viognier:
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.
