Viognier (vee-on-yay) is an aromatic white grape that gives notes of apricot, peach and white flowers. Because it is aromatic and rich in the glass it goes well with full flavoured spicy foods because the food doesn't overpower the wine. The grapes are from a single vineyard (which is less common for a wine of this price) and aged in oak (even less common) to give it more intensity and spicy notes. Serica is latin for silk which is a good description for the texture of the wine!
