Viognier is a very aromatic wine that originally hails from the Rhône Valley in Southern France. At the Zaca Mesa Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley, the grape is farmed to perfection before it’s crafted into luscious, bone-dry wines that make the perfect aperitif. Martellotto Winery selected this world-class fruit for its 2017 Viognier, and the result is a lush, lovely, and enticing bottling with exotic aromatics and flavors. This wine explodes with freshness, vibrancy and sunshine, offering tropical aromas of honeysuckle, white peach, and dried apricot and bright flavors of Meyer lemon and honey-crisp apple. Martellotto’s 2017 Viognier is an ideal wine to pair with seafood and salads - try the Catalan Shrimp with Paprika recipe.
