Viognier

The last wine of the winery, a rounded white wine, with fruit flavors, single varietal of vine of viognier grapes.

Viognier

Viognier

Originally from Croatia, the Viognier is cultivated in France in the region of the Rhone. The Viognier adapts well to warm climates because it resists well to draught, but it is a vine that has a low yield per hectare which is why it is often used in blends rather than produced in its pure state. The wine it produces is very particular, dry and mineral, with flavours of exotic fruits (pineapple and mango), and a golden yellow colour. It is a full-bodied rather than a fresh wine with a very persistent finale.
