**** NEW RELEASE ****
Viognier (pronounced “Vee-on-yay”) is presumed to be an ancient variety, widely assumed to originate in the regions around current day Croatia, but commonly grown in France’s Rhône Valley (mostly likely brought in by the Romans in the 3rd century), predominately in the south of the Rhône region, with it’s more Mediterranean climate. Viognier loves gentle, warm weather for ripening, so it is ideally suited to the South Burnett’s abundant warmth, sunshine and terroir. Fruit-driven, soft and luscious, this white wine will develop complexity with age. Vibrant citrus aromas, surprisingly full bodied on the palate, balanced by a clean, crisp finish that urges you to take another sip. An exciting variety from our “The Raconteur” range, Viognier shows great potential in the South Burnett in the future, try it now with spicy Asian food or fresh Queensland seafood!
