2018 ∆ - OREGON 'Grillet' Viognier

2018 ∆ - OREGON 'Grillet' Viognier

from 22.00

I’m a sucker for white wines and Rhône whites are right up there at the top of my “fav” list. In the world of fine wine, I think Viognier is one of the most misunderstood grapes. Along with grapes like Gewurztraminer and Riesling, Viognier also has a perception problem. At ∆ - Oregon, we love a good fight.

I’m a sucker for white wines and Rhône whites are right up there at the top of my list. In the world of fine wine, I think Viognier is one of the most misunderstood grapes. Along with grapes like Gewurztraminer and Riesling, Viognier also has a perception problem. At ∆ - Oregon, we love a good fight. This single vineyard sourced Viognier is one of the oldest in the Willamette Valley. Fermented in neutral French oak and elevage in Acacia puncheons, our “Grillet” is and ode to the Condrieu AOC. Google it.
