Viognier is one of the major white grapes from the Rhone Valley, France. Like Chardonnay, Viognier has the potential to produce full-bodied wines with a lush, soft character. In contrast to Chardonnay, the Viognier varietal has more natural aromatics that include notes of peach, pears, violets and minerality. This white wine has a full body and rich texture with low to medium acidity, which compliments the creamy sauce. Lobster has a delicate flavor, and Viognier accentuates its sweet, succulent nature. If you like Chardonnay, you will enjoy a Viognier!
