2017 Curieuse Pays d'Oc Viognier

It is curieuse indeed why an enchanting variety like Viognier may have almost gone extinct, with approximately only 80 acres planted worldwide in the 1980s. Since then, world-renowned regions like France's Condrieu have brought Viognier out of the shadows and onto the world stage, where it belongs. This particular example features all the hallmarks of the variety, from the delicate white floral aromas to the lovely flavors of peach and apricot on the palate, all lifted by a vein of acidity. Dishes that incorporate ginger and stone fruits are sure to make stellar accompaniments.
