A voluptuous, richer wine with soft, creamy texture. The wine is dry and soft and the aromas of grapefruit and lemon blossom with hints of musky pear, apple, citrus and tropical fruit. While this is a richer wine with softer acidity, the wine has muscle and pairs well with bold-flavored and spicy foods, grilled fish and chicken, and cream-based soups and sauces.
Viognier has many proponents and few detractors, yet it is a variety that is not widely understood or consumed. Possibly it is a "Chardon-istic" conspiracy, or is it because we all have difficulty saying "V-N-A"? It can be a wonderful alternative to Chardonnay with far more exotic and intriguing flavors and aromas. We ferment and age wine entirely in stainless steel to accentuate the fruity nature of the grape and highlight the honeysuckle orange blossom and peachy-nectarine characters. The wine is lighter-bodied than the wines hailing from its home base in France, the next time you need a dry white to go with your fish or fowl, try something different!
