The aromatic 2006 Yarden Viognier shows off attractive notes of fresh peaches, apricots and flowers with hints of spice and perfume, all highlighted with a background of smooth oak. While flavorful and rich the wine retains elegant drinkability. Viognier is still a fairly new variety for us but it seems that the wine will age very gracefully over four to seven years from the harvest. We enjoy Yarden viognier with rather exotic flavors. Try with a pureed white bean soup flavored with smoked goose breast and served with a drizzle of white truffle scented olive oil or wild mushroom ravioli tossed with shavings of some good aged gruyere.
