Description

Perhaps the most ostentatious wine grape in the world, Viognier is known for its intoxicating perfume in the glass and its prudish yield on the vine. The sparse downstream production per acre of plantings can make Viognier a prohibitive prospect for some vineyards, but it is nonetheless revered as one of the finest grapes to come from France. Although some speculate that this grape made its way to Rhone by way of Croatia thanks to the Roman emperor, Probus, in the modern age it is considered to be decisively French and singularly responsible for the famous varietal Condrieu. Often compared to Chardonnay but with more celebrated aromatics of peach, honeysuckle, pear, and gingerbread.

Second only to the Rhone Valley, California’s Central Coast is noted for producing exceptional Viognier. A finicky grape, to be sure, but it excels in the warm California sun, which promotes ripeness and ultimately boosts the aromatics of the finished wine. Compared to the French example, it can sometimes be lower in acidity but with more intense fruit character.

Our California Viognier bursts with gorgeous aromas of tangerine, peach, and rose. This dry white wine saunters on the palate with a light-medium body and stimulating alcohol level of 12% by volume.

The VineCo Original Viognier is an incredibly expressive wine that demands your attention. One pour can easily suspend you in time as you struggle to process the preposterous symphony of armotics emanating from the glass. As such, you’d do well to pair this wine with food that is no less outgoing, such as a spicy Pad Thai or a creamy mushroom dish.
