Wine 101: Viognier
Viogniers are seductive white wines, lush with peach and honeysuckle scents, a round, mouth-filling texture and little acidity.
The Condrieu region in France’s Rhône Valley produces the world’s greatest Viogniers, and they can often be quite expensive; California and occasionally Australia have also had success with this grape. Viognier pairs well with grilled seafood; it’s also a good match for most foods flavored with fruit salsas.
