Virginia Viognier, which is the official Virginia state grape and is rapidly gaining international recognition for high quality. Breaux Vineyards’ Viognier in particular has earned multiple Decanter awards and the #87 spot in Oz Clarke’s Best Wines of 2012.
This intensely flavored and elegantly refined wine is supported with a well-integrated acidity that empowers the substantial body weight across the palate. Nutty aromas intertwine with white flowers, melons and fresh bananas on the nose.
Color: Straw, with hints of green
Aromas: Orange blossom, pineapple, melon, honey and butter cream
