Viognier Tasting Notes: Viognier may be the world's least widely planted premium grape -- but currently one of the most prized. In the vineyard, yields and acid levels tend to be low and susceptibility to disease and rot high. In the winery, it is very temperamental. But once in the bottle or the glass, a well made Viognier comes with a deep, yellow color and an exquisite, exotic bouquet – apricots, pears and tropical fruits. In the Northern Rhone, Viognier is the basis of the wines of Condrieu and Chateau-Grillet.Tropical fruit, honeysuckle, ripe peaches, apricot, mango, pear, pineapple, guava, kiwi, and tangerine. Light to medium bodied, made dry or off-dry, with some made sweet with late harvested fruit.
