Winemaker Notes

Swooping in to rescue your palate from the ordinary, this sleek, rich Viognier will excite the senses and tickle your fancy. Flirtatious green apple, honeysuckle and white peach aromas playfully engage with flavors of pear and melon. A medium to full bodied white wine, with a balanced and sustaining finish.

This full bodied Viognier will stand up to rich dishes such as roasted chicken in a white lemon cream sauce, grilled striped bass with plums and potato mushroom papillotes, or crunchy shrimp cakes.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
A crowd-pleasing wine, the bright and lively 2015 White Knight Viognier drinks smooth and easy. The wine's pretty aromatics and soft acidity pairs it well with grilled prawns. (Tasted: November 10, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Clarksburg

View all wine

The vineyards just inland from the Sacramento River Delta, along the deep banks of the Sacramento River, comprise the Clarksburg AVA. The River Delta channels in cold air and fog from the Pacific Ocean creating a cooling effect in this area. Warm summer days quickly change to chilly evenings and make a great environment for grape growing. While a range of grape varieties grow here, Chenin blanc stands out the most, distinguishing itself for the appellation.

The Clarksburg Wine Growers and Vintners Association, made up of nearly 50 grower members and over a dozen wineries, has been working since the late 1980s to promote the high quality wine of its region.

Viognier

View all wine

Full-figured and reminiscent of a potent floral perfume, Viognier is the mandatory grape of the northern Rhône appellation Condrieu and neighboring monopole (an entire appellation dedicated to just one winery) Château Grillet. It is also a blending variety in several appellations throughout the entire Rhône Valley. Viognier is grown throughout much of the world with some degree of success, but is perhaps at its best outside of France in Oregon, Washington, and cooler parts of Australia, where minerality and acidity can be achieved to give the wine the backbone it can sometimes lack.

In the Glass

This is a heady, aromatic variety making rich, complex, and full-bodied white wines redolent of a floral bouquet and assorted stone fruits and tropical fruits, with a hint of spice not unlike that of Gewürztraminer. It is lower in acidity than most white wines, lending to its heavy impression on the palate. While a whiff of Viognier might suggest sweet flavors, these wines are typically quite dry.

Perfect Pairings

Viognier is an intense, bold variety that can easily stand up to gutsy food like pork loin with apricot stuffing, chicken Kiev, or rich, spicy fare.

Sommelier Secret

While Viognier is a white grape, it also plays an important role in the red wines of Côte Rôtie in the northern Rhône, made otherwise from Syrah. About 5% Viognier is typically co-fermented with the Syrah in order to stabilize the color, and as an added benefit, add a subtle perfume.
