Viognier ranges in taste from lighter flavors of tangerine, mango and honeysuckle to creamier aromas of vanilla with spices of nutmeg and clove. ... Viognier wines are almost always noted for an oily sensation on the middle of the tongue which is a characteristic of wines made with this grape.
Cristom Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Viognier 2016
The 2016 Cristom Vineyards Estate Viognier exhibits the pure, and nearly textbook, characteristics of this varietal, with aromas of orange blossoms, honeysuckle, clover, and anise as well as the ripe fruit aromas of peach, apricot, and lychee. Slightly viscous on the palate, with bright and mouthwatering acidity that support the fruit structure of the wine, it is well integrated and perfectly balanced.
"The 2015 vintage is highly regarded and 2016 is even better." GS
