Viognier

The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Galopine, Petit Viognier, Viogné, Viogner, Viognier Bijeli, Viognier Blanc, Viognier Jaune, Viognier Vert, Vionjer, Vionnier Vionnier Jaune, Vionnier Petit, Vionnier Vert. Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it must not be confused with the varieties Altesse, Chouchillon (Faux Viognier) or Vugava. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2008, there is a parent-offspring relationship with Mondeuse Blanche, as well as a close relationship with Freisa. The medium-maturing, not very productive vine is relatively resistant to botrytis, but susceptible to powdery mildew. It produces deep yellow, high alcohol, extract-rich white wines with aromas of apricots, peaches, lemons and flowers (lily of the valley, violets) as well as ageing potential.
