Signature Viognier Wine Details
Price: $22.00 per bottle

Description: Elegant dry white wine with subtle aromas of peaches, honeysuckle and wildflowers that evoke summer mornings in the Virginia countryside. Barrel-fermented and aged in neutral oak to highlight character.

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.
