Viognier

The unsung hero of wine, and the dark horse of the wine future, Viognier is a white grape, adaptable enough to shine as an individual as well as lend itself with grace to many wine blends.

The most famous Viognier vines are planted in the Rhône Valley, where it is used for the white wine of Condrieu (in Côte-du-Rhône blends) and is mixed at the point of picking with Syrah (5%/95%) to make the famous red wines of Côte-Rotie. This ability to make terrific white wine and contribute to red wine is why Viognier is quickly spreading around the world.

In America, Argentina and Chile, Viognier is planted and mainly used in sole varietal white wine, the flexibility not being compromised.

In America, Viognier is often vinified with oak, keeping with the style of Condreiu.

The grape is usually unoaked and makes lighter, "drink-now", wines in South America.

In Australia, the Côte-Rotie blend has become very popular. In this blend, the 5% Viognier addition to the Shiraz/Syrah grape helps to soften the rtannic red wine, and bonds to juice to make the wine more aromatic.

Key Regions

France (Rhône Valley), America (California), Chile, Argentina and Australia.

Colour and Flavours

As a single varietal, Viognier is yellow-gold in colour and complex in aroma with notes of honey, apricot, peach and hawthorn. When oaked, it is rounded on the palate, whereas when devoid of oak maturing it is more acidic and crisp.
