2017 Muska Riesling

2017 Muska Riesling

This dry, single vineyard Riesling really displays the terroir with a flinty nose and offers up aromas of tropical and citrus fruits. This wine is begging to be paired with a key lime pie with a graham cracker crust.

Key lime, flint, and ginseng with prickly acidity and a refreshing finish.

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