Viognier (“Vee-own-yay”) is a full-bodied white wine that originated in southern France. Most loved for its perfumed aromas of peach, tangerine and honeysuckle, Viognier can also be oak-aged to add a rich creamy taste with hints of vanilla. If you love to brood over bolder white wines like Chardonnay, Viognier is definitely something you’ll like to swirl.

Viognier is for those who love to stop and smell the flowers. Viognier ranges in taste from lighter flavors of tangerine, mango and honeysuckle to creamier aromas of vanilla with spices of nutmeg and clove. Depending on the producer and how it’s made, it will range in intensity from light and spritzy with a touch of bitterness to bold and creamy. If you like Chardonnay you’ll like the weight of Viognier and notice it’s often a little softer on acidity, a bit lighter and also more perfumed.

On the palate, the wines are typically dry although some producers will make a slightly off-dry style that embellishes Viognier’s peachy aromas. Viognier wines are almost always noted for an oily sensation on the middle of the tongue which is a characteristic of wines made with this grape. The drier styles come across less fruity on the palate and deliver subtle bitterness almost like crunching into a fresh rose petal.

  2. Dom. Paul Mas 'Arrogant Frog' Viognier 2015

    Dom. Paul Mas 'Arrogant Frog' Viognier 2015
    Where most viogniers from Northern Rhone fade in the first 3-5 years of life the amazingly well priced 'Arrogant Frog' has kept its wits while those more serious wines have lost the plot. The success of this wine lies in its' closure; the screwcap has saved it and preserved much of the youthfulness and vivacity. Colour is straw yellow, lively acids and lots of honeyed notes mingle in a generous mid-palate. A wine that is welcome poolside or tableside. Serve well chilled in the tropical climate.
