If you're looking for a full-bodied, dry white wine, you've come to the right place. Viognier is an incredibly aromatic wine with a taste that ranges from light to creamy depending on how its made. Lighter varieties made in steel tanks will bring to mind tangerine, mango and honeysuckle. Oak-aged wines, on the other hand, will deliver notes of vanilla with spices like nutmeg and clove.
Try It If:
Chardonnay lovers will fall in love at first sip. Viognier wine is a touch lighter than Chardonnay with a softer acidity and a more perfumed aroma.
How to Pair:
Due to the delicate floral notes and medium acidity of Viognier, you'll want to choose foods that aren't too bold or acidic. Think roasted turkey or chicken, halibut, sea bass, gruyere, butternut squash, pumpkin, mango, orange and apricots.
