Viognier on Snooth

  • Duncan, wasn't talking about all Condrieu or Viognier. Just a lot that has been neglected by better winemakers, and what is produced often promises on the nose but goes flat and stunted on the palate leaving a headshaking response. Too often when I'm ready to try a new one and get a pour at a bistro or some such place the nose is sexy and uplift... Read More

  • How many of those left at home now, Greg?Agree with you on the poor enticement ... ... which were usually not viognier, either. Co-fermentation I view as a whole different subject.The Rhone 'landscape' has changed so much since then when 2/3 of the C9dPs seemingly smelled of road apples. Does anyone have any dope on how Grillet has evolved/ad... Read More

  • It may be the grape that promises most and delivers least. Always a nice floral note and rarely has the acidity and complexity to balance it out.Surprisingly however, as others have said, it's also one of those grapes that people have been playing with in CA and it's promising. I've had a few satisfying versions from CA. Qupe is another that com... Read More

  • As RCKR1951 says viognier originated in France,like so many of the so-called 'international', grape varieties, to be specific in the northern Rhone valley in the Condrieu appellation. I have had several. It is a dry wine with a melon,peach and pear style fruit and some have a floral finish. Chateau Grillet is also made of viognier but I have not... Read More

  • Yalumba makes a good viognier and it is available in the US. It's wonderful.  It is used very successfully in a blends with shiraz.  It is also done well in the south of France either on it's own or in blends.  France is the ancestral home of the grape and you'd think they'd market it better over here but they don't.Stateside production has incr...

  • Cline Cellars North Coast Viognier has been my go to viognier for a while now. Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try.As a second thought Lefty. Viognier can set on the shelves a while in the US. It can get a bit oily with age. I'd stick to wines 3 years or younger.   Read More

  • Good to hear McManis is still holding it down. I remember having very good low dollar experiences with their wines many years back.  Read More

  • Hey Lefty, gotta love the viognier.  Surprisingly enough, some of my favorite viognier has come from the Central Coast, several wineries in Paso make excellent wine from this grape.  Two that come immediately to mind are Tablas and Anglim (although Anglim sources their grapes from Santa Maria Valley.  Love that white stone fruit mixed with honey...
