Indigenous World Wines Viognier
INDIGENOUS WORLD WINES
Viognier produces an aromatic wine with stone fruit, lavender and herbal notes. Some styles can be particularly dry, while others have a rich, smooth taste. Viognier wines typically have a sweeter taste with low acidity and a well-rounded finish. Viognier is often used in blends, providing a unique floral lift to the wines.
Viognier is very difficult to grow, it’s prone to mildew and can only be picked when fully ripe. The yields are very unpredictable making it difficult for winemakers. In 1965, Viognier almost went extinct. Since then, the number of plantings has increased significantly. In Canada, Viognier grows best in British Columbia due to its warmer climate. Serve Viognier chilled for the best experience.
