International Viognier Day is 4/26 | WineTransit.com

Tomorrow is International Viognier Day, and it's time we give this full-bodied white the recognition it deserves. These fragrant white wines which originated in southern France typically have a little less acidity than Chardonnay, with common flavor notes of peach, tangerine, honeysuckle, and rose. We're just entering peak white wine season, and these refreshing whites are a great choice for summer enjoyment.

Here are a few of our favorites.

Yalumba The Y Series Viognier

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 25546

SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2021
Peach and apricot notes are fragrant and juicy, with orange sherbet, lemon blossom and a fresh, mouthwatering finish. Drink now. 80,000 cases made, 19,400 cases imported.
RP8686 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2021
Scents of white pepper, flower blossoms and lychee mark the 2020 Y Series Viognier as being varietally correct, even if it’s not a rich, concentrated example. It’s medium-bodied, silky-textured and spicy, with a splash of rosewater on the finish. Drink it over the next year.

E. Guigal Condrieu

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 56611

JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/19/2020
The base Condrieu from Guigal always delivers and the 2019 Condrieu is stunning stuff, giving up a beautiful bouquet of ripe nectarines, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and exotic flowers. Just classic Condrieu in every way, it’s medium to full-bodied, with remarkable purity, a fleshy opulence, and a great, clean finish. Readers looking for a textbook Condrieu can’t go wrong with this. It should keep for 7–8 years, although I always prefer these wines in their first 4–5 years of the vintage. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Alban Vineyards Edna Valley Viognier

Alban Estate Vineyard
2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 9951

JD94+94–97 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 9/26/2022
Scheduled to be bottled in August, the 2021 Viognier Estate will be another beautiful example of Viognier. Ripe tangerines, quince, flowers, and a kiss of honeyed minerality all define the bouquet, and it’s as pure and seamless as they come, with medium to full body, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It’s slightly more chiseled and focused compared to the 2020, but both are brilliant. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 8th Dec 2022
The 2021 Viognier Estate was mostly barrel fermented and matured, with the exception of a small portion of terracotta. Lush quince and white peach are complemented by tones of crushed almonds, beeswax and spice on the nose. Medium-bodied and satiny, the palate is generous and savory with plenty of freshness and a touch of anchoring texture that drives the very long finish. It will be released in the spring of 2023.

Cambria Tepusquet Vineyard Viognier

2022 / 750 ml.

Item #: 61344

JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/30/2023
All varietal, the 2022 Viognier Tepusquet Vineyard is terrific as well, with a light hue as well as perfumed, exotic notes of sappy, minty herbs, lemon pith, and orange blossom in a clean, medium-bodied, vibrant profile. It’s an outstanding example of the variety to drink over the coming year or so. (Jeb Dunnuck)
