Viognier 'is growing in popularity' among wine hamper wines
Published on 13/08/2010

Wine hamper fans may be interested to hear the comments of one expert who suggested Viognier is growing in popularity.

In an article for 3news.com, Benjamin Quigan said the drink can be a "refreshing change" to other wines, such as Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.

"With the high aromatic nature of this wine I would recommend to try pairing with spicy foods such as Thai or Vietnamese cuisine," he added.

Mr Quigan noted most people seem to think Viognier is a sweet wine, but it is actually quite dry, despite the floral aromas and colour.

He advised individuals to imbibe the wine when it is young as the ageing process can leave it tasting flat, as the scent tends to diminish.

Earlier this week, a piece in the Osceola Sentinel-Tribune advised wine hamper fans to drink red wine when consuming chocolate-based puddings.

It also explained a fruity Riesling is ideal when fresh fruit or pastry is on the menu.
