    There are now plantings of the Viognier grape worldwide but this grape’s spiritual homeland is in Condrieu in the Northern Rhone – where the finest Viogniers are produced.   The wines are dry with a wonderful floral nose of peaches, apricots, violets and pears, and quite alcoholic, with low-ish acidity.

    The Francois Villard Viognier `Les Contours de Deponcins` wine comes from a vineyard lying next to a vineyard that produces some of the finest wines of the appellation.  Condrieu in all but name this has a classic rich and complex nose with aromas and flavours of peach, apricot and wild flowers.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
