6 Types of Wine to Try
If you like Chardonnay, try Viognier.
Chardonnay drinkers who tire of its often oaky, buttery quality will be revived by flavors of peach, apricot, and exotic fruit in Viognier. Originally from the Rhone Valley in France, Viognier’s lush, creamy texture and full body will make Chardonnay drinkers feel at home. A floral, tropical quality compliments spicy fare like jerk chicken or wasabi topped sushi rolls. Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2013, ($12, at liquor stores) is a particularly crisp version and an ideal partner for rich dishes like lobster in butter sauce or coconut curry.
