Viognier Grape Variety
Viognier is a white wine grape variety that used to be confined to a tiny part of the Rhône Valley, where it produced the famous white wines of Condrieu. In recent times its popularity has spread into countries such as Australia, New Zealand and California whilst at the same time becoming increasing popular in the Languedoc – Roussillon region of France.
The best examples of Viognier have a lush, aromatic quality with a distinctive peachy character. A variety that is low in acidity so expect a softer more rounded style of wine that is often matured in oak.
