Originating from the Rhone Valley in France, Viognier (pronounced Vee-on-yay) is relatively new to New Zealand with 75% of the vines grown in the Hawkes Bay and Gisborne wine regions. Viognier is an aromatic grape variety and is a remarkably difficult grape to grow. Viognier grapes have naturally low acidity and require a great deal of sunshine to ripen properly.

Viognier is known for producing textural white wines with strong stone-fruit flavours of peaches, pears and apricots. Its scented floral aromas of lavender and pollen make it a great food match with Asian pork and chicken cuisines.

Viognier has the most amazing clear, golden colouring and are intended to be consumed at a younger age.

Food Matching: Apricot rice pudding (sweet), Candied orange cheesecake (sweet), Cashew-nut curry, Glazed apricot tart (sweet), Grilled kingfish steaks with roasted sweet potato (kumara) (dry), Grilled salmon on dauphinois potatoes (dry), Pork dumplings (dry)
