Viognier (pronounced vee-on-yay) is one of the worlds least planted white wine varieties. It’s most notable use is in the white wines of the Rhone Valley in France, but is often heavily blended, hiding its unique characters. Blue Pyrenees planted small experimental plots of this variety in the 1990’s and excited by the results, has undertaken further investment in Viognier, allowing Blue Pyrenees to make small releases of this intriguing white wine. Early morning picking of grapes were rapidly processed, with the free run juice and light pressings being racked to old white French oak barrels the next day for a slow natural fermentation with high solids content, and then 3 months barrel aging with fortnightly battonage.
