Apolloni Vineyards 2011 Dolce Vino Viognier, Oregon, $22

By on July 1, 2013

Oregon wineWe’ve noticed a trend over the past decade that Viognier tends to make a superb dessert wine – a bit surprising considering it has naturally low acidity. Yet here’s another classic example from a Willamette Valley winery that’s deliciously sweet at 16% residual sugar. It opens with aromas of rosewater, baked peach pie and orange biscuit, followed by yummy flavors of orange, honey and minerality. The midpalate is rich and viscous and gives way to a big finish.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 210 cases

Alcohol: 12.9%
