grape: Viognier. If you don’t love Viognier, start drinking it now. Spring is the absolute perfect time for this grape, since your glass basically turns into a bouquet of fresh flowers. Most are from the Rhone in France, but the US is making a little now too, and hooray for that.
producer: Vina Robles
region: Paso Robles, CA
yum factors: Beautiful perfume of orange blossom, white flowers (despite my pretty purple hyacinths in the photo), yellow apple, and fresh almond. It has medium acidity and medium-to-light body. So lovely and elegant, and just the perfect amount of body for spring weather too.
