Tangerine, mango, golden pineapple and cantaloupe compliment a honey noted but dry supple palate with a medium body and ripe balanced finish. Has just enough acidity to balance the cornucopia of fruit, but could not be described as crisp.

Food Suggestion:
The highly aromatic and fruit forward nature of Viognier works very well with Thai food. It latches onto to ginger with enthusiasm and the muskiness of Viognier also leads to an affinity with mushrooms.
