Late Harvest Viognier Wine Details
Price: $17.00 per bottle

Description: Our Viognier has a residual sugar of three percent, which makes it sweet but not too sweet. The aroma has a heady perfume of apricots, honeysuckle and tropical fruits. It is rich with a taste that confirms the expectation of the aroma, smooth and complex with a very slight characteristic bitterness in the finish typical of Viognier. A wonderful wine for desert or even as an aperitif with almonds and figs.

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.
