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 unique climate and soils. Young, vibrant and aromatic, the bouquet leaps from the glass with lifted citrus, passion fruit and pineapple notes. Fresh and juicy on the palate, with a tight, crisp dry finish. An exciting variety that may hold great potential in the South Burnett in the future, try this Viognier with spicy Asian food or fresh Queensland seafood!
