Product Description

This is our inaugural release of Riesling and we are proud of it! The wine is a bright, crystal clear green/gold color. Fresh aromas of slate, lime, white flowers, minerals and citrus leap from the glass. More complex nuances of strawberries, orange blossom and spice emerge in time. In the mouth, the wine is vibrant and alive with focused and powerful flavors that echo the aromas on the attack. A long, clean finish with final flavors of wet stones and minerals completes this complex and beautiful wine. This wine will gain complexity over the next ten years, but is already drinking great now.

Varietal: Riesling

Region: Oregon

Region Description:

This state’s strict wine laws demand that variety wines must contain at least 90% of the named grape (except for Cabernet Sauvignon). The region’s cool climate comes from its proximity to the Pacific and its primary grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The latter wine is usually medium bodied, with aromas reminiscent of pears and apples and a surprising depth and complexity. Oregon Pinot Gris is a great food wine, and works especially well with seafood and salmon. Pinot Noir is a more expensive wine here, but that is because it can be such a difficult grape to grow that yields are inevitably low. The best Oregon Pinot Noirs are balanced, fruity and full.
