Willamette Valley Riesling


750 ML


Product Description

A semi-sweet medium bodied Germanic styled wine. Vibrant aromas of peach, pear, citrus and honeysuckle flowers. The explosive mouth-filling flavors mirror the aromas with star fruit and steely apple malic acidity, giving a sweet-tart balance. Sweet, clean and refreshing with a crisp mouth-watering finish. Serving Suggestions: Great by itself. A good match with light cheeses, citrus fruits, slightly sweet fowl dishes with fruit chutney, prawns, scallops, and crab. Serve well chilled on the table and allow to warm in your glass for optimal enjoyment of aromas and flavor


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.
