Viognier comes to us from the Condrieu and Chateau-Grillet appellations of the northern Rhone. It was presumed to have arrived from Dalmatia and transported to the Rhone by Emperor Probus in AD 281. Currently there are approximately 2,000 acres planted of this varietal in California. Cline's Viognier offers rich and distinctive aromas of pears, apricots, orange blossoms and honeysuckle.
Cline's Viognier is loaded with pineapple,
peach and apricot flavors accented by fl oral
and citrus notes. Perfect as an apéritif with
Gruyère or Camembert, this wine also pairs
exceptionally well with curried shrimp or
Asian fusion cuisine. Serve lightly chilled.
