Despite the low alcohol, this is not overly sweet, but the searing tartness of past vintages has been moderated here. Lemon, vanilla, sweet pineapple and green apple are all in play, with ample acidity to cut through.”

92 Points - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of baked apples, quince, cinnamon, spiced pears, nectarine, candied lemons, elderflowers, earl grey tea and tidal pool. Medium bodied with tart, high acidity.
Jillian Barnhart
Sommelier
Delicious with Netarts oysters, fresh lemon, pickled shallot, brunoise of pear.
Norma Buchholz
Chef
A remarkable off-dry riesling. Brioche, floral and ripe clementines lead to a voluminous body balanced with bright nectarines and zesty meyer lemons.

Winemaking Notes

A wet, but warm spring with a few mild frosts during late April and fewer than average heat spikes.
Near-record precipitation amounts during late June and early July brought increased disease pressure to the region.
The vintage will be remembered for the early rains in September and rapid cool down into October which challenged harvesting decisions. The cool vintage came largely from substantially lower maximum temperatures while minimum temperatures were near average to slightly above average.
A classic Oregon vintage!
