Yes, that peachy dream of a wine has weaseled its way into almost everyone’s hearts. I like the floral and peachy aromatics of most Viognier, but find that they don’t always deliver enough richness on the palate, unless you consider alcohol to be sufficient in and of itself.
With the right dishes, Viognier can do a fine job of defending itself. It has the intensity to rise above its partners, lending a wonderful top note to all the pumpkin, yams, cranberries and carrots you might serve during the Thanksgiving feast.
