Spangler Vineyards 2015 Viognier, Southern Oregon, $21

By on April 23, 2016

spangler viognierRoseburg, Ore., winemaker Patrick Spangler continues to refine his Viognier program and gradually reduced his use of oak. This young edition serves as a beautiful and fresh example of his harvest just a few months ago. It offers a tantalizing theme of orange Creamsicle and Pim’s orange biscuit. The amazing mouth feel is silky with ample acidity, backed by a finish of Walkers Shortbread cookie and dried papaya. This earned a double gold and best of class at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
