This week we are featuring a French Viognier and Cabernet Sauvignon /Cabernet Franc Blend from Argentina.
Vieux Chene Vin De Pays Viognier
Light yellow straw color with green glints. A fine aromatic wine with aromas of apricots and and Acacia. Long and full on the mouth, awash with citrus and vanilla overtones.
Viognier is a white wine grape variety. It is the only permitted grape for the French wine Condrieu in the Rhône Valley. Like Chardonnay, Viognier has the potential to produce full-bodied wines with a lush, soft character. In contrast to Chardonnay, the Viognier varietal has more natural aromatics that include notes of peach, pears, violets and minerality
This is a dark red garnet wine, of good structure and excellent body. It has dark cherry or black currant maturity. Time gives it a cedar or cigar box undertones. Some blueberry and chocolate aromas can be found. Its tannins are tangible and generous. Cabernet Franc supplies raspberry, currant leaf and pebble aromas. Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc
