Scallop ceviche, coconut cream, lime & serrano chili with puffed wontons would make a great bite for this amazing wine!

Vintage Notes

A wet, cool spring delayed flowering until late June, which set the stage for a later harvest than the previous three vintages. Hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer, yielding heat spikes in August.

With a larger than normal fruit set, the grapes enjoyed long hang time leading up to harvest. Conditions cooled and brought in scattered rains with the harvest, which began at Brooks on the 28th of September and ran through November 1st, almost returning to normal average harvest dates in the Willamette Valley. The wines from the vintage show fresh fruit flavors and lively acidity.

Comprised of riesling grapes of clone Geisenheim 110 from the Bois Joli vineyard located in the Eola-Amity Hills. The vines were planted in 1983 in marine sedimentary-willakenzie soil.

In all, it will be remembered as a classic vintage in Oregon!
