Year after year, Darioush Signature Viognier is described with accolades such as ‘vibrant,’ ‘floral,’ and ‘seductive’ from a growing number of devoted followers. This single-vineyard estate-grown Viognier derives its consistently distinctive character from a four-acre site within our Ashley Vineyard. One of our most popular wines, it is available for only a few months every summer.

Citrus blossom, jasmine and honeysuckle aromas leap from the glass, distinguishing the unique qualities of this varietal right away. The flavors remind us of biting into a ripe August peach—bright, vibrant, juicy and succulent—with just the right amount of creamy pear and lemon-citrus acidity to keep it refreshing and balanced on the palate. Notes of wildflower honey, toasted walnut and vanilla add further complexity and intrigue.

Awarded “Best of the Best” by ROBB REPORT in June 2006 for the third consecutive year.
