Viognier Rhymes With Labor Day

Some of the best viognier can be found in Virginia. The 2008 Horton Vineyard Viognier from Orange County, Va. is a steal at $15. It has scents of acacia, tropical fruit and white peaches with flavors of peach, pineapple, vanilla and toasty oak. The 2008 Freemark Abbey Viognier from Napa Valley ($25) sports a nose of acacia and nectarines that leads to palate pleasing flavors of creamy peaches and tropical fruits with a touch of wet stone. If you want to experience Viognier in its native form, try the 2007 E. Guigal Condrieu ($53) from the Rhone Valley in France. Another wine to try: Australia’s 2008 d’Arenberg “The Last Ditch” Viognier ($25).
