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.
Rich & Creamy
Very nice. I like viognier alone or in blends.
I discovered this delicious wine by accident, while I was at dinner in San Francisco. I love Viognier, but really haven't had it since I left Virginia, so I had to order a class. It smells as good as it tastes! It is on the sweeter side, but it's a balanced sweetness. It paired very nicely with my seafood dish. I will order this wine again and again. If you try it and like it, look for the Viognier that Virginia's Chrysalis produces.
