The Instacart guide to Viognier
Viognier is a full-bodied white wine that is usually oak-aged to help it develop a creamy texture. The primary aromas in Viogniers are flowery rose petals and perfumes with highlights of tangerine or another sweet citrus fruit. These wines are almost always made in a dry style, and the taste profile of Viognier ranges from light and spritzy with just a touch of bitterness to very bold with a creamy texture.
Viognier grapes are grown in several countries, but what's more important than where they are grown is the climate conditions. The grapes produce the best wine when grown in sunny areas with cool temperatures at night, or when grown near bodies of water. Cool temperatures are an important feature in maintaining the Viognier's acidity. If it gets too hot, the grapes will yield overblown, overly alcoholic wine that does not have the fresh, sweet zing that makes this wine so appealing. The best regions for growing Viognier are the Northern Rhone Valley in France, Eden Valley in South Australia, and the Central and North Coast of California.
Both Chardonnay and Viognier are full-bodied wines, but they have very different aromatic profiles and textural differences. While Viognier has highlights of sweet citrus such as tangerine and the aroma is dominated by floral notes such as rose petals, Chardonnay is almost always dominated by the aroma of yellow apple. Beyond the apple, Chardonnay will have notes that range from pineapple to lemon zest.
