Late Harvest Viognier Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: Not only in color but in quantity. Only 50 cases of this gem were produced with the guidance of Yves Gangloff, French winemaker/master. honey and nut aromas are predominant in this "Baklava" in a glass. It is our second vintage of this wine, so don't miss it. Not only is its production limited to exceptional years, the first release sold out in one day.

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.
