Viognier vs. Chardonnay

Most people will agree that when asked about what to serve at a fall dinner, most would answer ‘Chardonnay’ or ‘Sauv. Blanc’.  A great alternative is a viognier, a great fall wine that has the heaviness of a chardonnay, but without the harsh oakiness (whether it’s oaked or unoaked, both, in my opinion, both taste the same).  There is a buttery quality to this wine as well as a citrisy note, that lingers long aferwards.  By far, this would be a great choice for your ThanksGiving dinner this fall, but could and would be better served with a chorizo infused pasta dish.  So try this wine an alternative for this holiday weekend.
