Viognier is a white-wine grape variety known for producing textural, aromatic wines with pronounced stone fruit flavors; ‘apricots and steel’ are the variety’s classic flavor associations. On the nose, Viognier wines can also be very herbal, with aromas of chamomile, lavender, thyme and even a hint of pine. In aged examples and sweeter styles, this potentially overpowering herbality is softened by honeyed notes.

Saronsberg 2009 Viognier has a light straw color and flavors of butterscotch, nutty caramel, pear and lime. It has a rich, silky palate and a balanced oak finish.
