2015 Bois Joli Riesling

$24.00 / Bottle

This wine is not your typical Riesling…it’s on a mission to restore the reputation of US Riesling and to showcase the quality of wine that can be made from old vines in the Willamette Valley. Riesling reveals its vineyard origins more than any other white grape varietal; this wine translates its terroir into the glass with finesse and elegance. A perfect food wine! 763 cases produced.
Ripe fruit character on the nose. Impressions of apricot, orange, ripe peach and lemon curd. A wonderful perception of spiciness with grated ginger, chervil and nutmeg.

In the mouth this wine is loaded with ripe, full-bodied fruit, canned pears, orange, nectarine and dried apricot. Very pretty citrus blossom, floral notes and spiciness on the finish, with bright acidity like biting in to a ripe white peach. It is round and fat, with slight glycerol and passion fruit and guava tropical fruit leaving a long last- ing finish balanced with mineral and floral notes.

With this medium to full bodied rich fruit profile, this would be a show stopper with fish like skate wing, halibut or cod with a citrus, butter sauce, or scallops using grapefruit and coconut in a Vietnamese preparation or certainly with barbequed pork or roasted crab.
