Quaking Hills Viognier -

Quaking Hills Viognier - Wine Details
Price: $21.00 per bottle

Description: To preserve more fruit and retain more acidity only 50% of this wine was allowed to finish ML. But, even with the change, those of you that loved earlier vintages will not be disspointed with the end result. This is a super blend of rich fullness and wonderful aromas. Our non-traditional Viognier has a touch of oak to go along with its delightful floral fragrance.

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.
