Viognier

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