This is a delicious varietal if you’re looking to move outside the chardonnay or sauvignon blanc box. Immediate notes of white peach, lime, and white flower are very apparent, with a medium body and clean finish. You’ll notice this wine has a bit more of an aromatic approach with a little less acidity.

Food pairing notes
Ever had baked brie? Holy crap this wine is a perfect fit! Try it with some dried apricots and dates and you’ll be blown away. Moving on to main dishes, this wine will pair delightfully with lighter meats like pork chops, grilled halibut, or my favorite, yellow chicken curry.
Vog-ner? Vee-og-ner? How the hell do you say it? It’s pronounced “vee-yon-yay”, and yes, most people have never tried it, let alone bought it from a store. This is a definite go to when getting people to try something different. You say you like the crispness of sauv blanc, and you like the smoothness of a chardonnay? This is like marrying the two and highlighting the best of both.
You’ll notice the range of serving temperature, it can go a bit warmer than most other whites. I say this because there’s a nice roundness and tropical fruit note that comes out when it approaches the 55º range.
