This is Viognier’s home base and its style follows closely the characteristics in the Flavor Descriptors section. One important distinction is that French Viognier is typically drier and less fruity than most New World examples, even though it still can be quite rich.
As with many varietals that originated in France, the New World style offers more obvious ripe fruit flavors and a softer fuller-bodied texture.
