Viognier is a white grape variety that is known for its stone fruit aromas such as apricot and peach. It is best known for being the grape of the white wine Condrieu in France's northern Rhône and also found blended with Syrah in red wines. It is susceptible to high alcohol levels and low levels of acidity. Viognier is best suited to warmer climates and is found in regions such as the northern Rhône, Languedoc and Australia. It is also grown in small amounts in other regions such as California and Oregon. Careful viticulture and winemaking are essential to ensure that the variety's tendency to produce high sugar levels does not result in flabby alcoholic wines.
