Viognier is a very ancient variety going back to at least Roman times and comes to us from the Rhone Valley in southern France. It makes some of the most distinctively aromatic wines in the world. The peach, honey and floral aromas might lead you to expect a delicate wine, but it’s also famous for being rather voluptuous on the palate and generous in alcohol.
