Viognier, a northern Rhone grape, is relatively small and produces full-bodied, rich wines with pronounced floral aromatics and low acidity. When fully ripe, Viognier often has high alcohol levels which contribute to a rich, creamy mouth-feel. Vintners often produce Viognier with small amounts of residual sugar to balance the high alcohol levels. Even if Viognier is produced completely dry, the expressive fruit flavors and high alcohol often create a slight sense of sweetness. This high powered wine does particularly well with spicy foods.
