Winemaker's Notes

We harvest our Riesling grapes in the cool early morning, and then gently press the whole clusters to coax the juice through the skins of the grapes. The Riesling juice undergoes a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is aged on its lees to build weight and body, and is bottled in late winter to preserve the delicate aromatics.

The Kings Ridge 2007 Riesling has aromas of white fruit highlighted by peach notes and tangerine, combined with a distinct spiciness on the nose. In the mouth, bright acidity and minerality contrast with rich weight and complex fruit fl avors in a long and intense finish.

"This Spicy and aromatic Riesling is sourced from a vineyard planted 40 years ago by Dick Erath. Stainless-steel fermented and finished off-dry, it's tart and juicy enough to work with most Riesling friendly foods. It's the spice that dominates, not the sugar. This is a wonderful bottle, with classic Oregon scents that run from flower to fruit to stone. Concentrated yet delicate, it is an amazing value" - Wine Enthusiast
