2015 La Chenaie Riesling Magnum 1.5L

2015 La Chenaie Riesling Magnum 1.5L

Sweet Riesling

Just the tiny bit of pithy bitterness adds a wonderful complexity to the moderate acidity and mineral, ripe fruit finish. Very intriguing and intense, with a never ending finish of round, fruit and perfume.

Comprised of riesling grapes from La Chenaie vineyard located in the Eola-Amity Hills. The vines were planted in 2006 in volcanic basalt-jory, ritner, and gelderman soil.

Vintage Notes

A warm winter yielded bud break three weeks earlier than normal and lead into bloom under exceptional weather conditions. A dry and hot summer was broken up by rain in late August, and favorably cooled down in September in time to result in one of the earliest harvests on record. The grapes at harvest were extraordinary in quantity and quality, offering ripeness, balance, and expressive flavor.
