Top Rated Viognier

Viognier grapes

Gaining tremendous popularity in California vineyards, Viognier is an aromatic, full-bodied white wine of a deep, golden color, and a rich, tropical flavor and creamy mouthfeel — similar to Chardonnay. Viognier has a complex aroma, familiar to overripe apricots, orange blossoms and acacia. Other attributable notes include honey, vanilla, tropical fruits, anise and mint, and it is intended to be consumed young. The best Viogniers we've tasted, starting with our highest rated wines.
