It is always interesting and challenging to make a Riesling from a very different climate such as the wet and cool Willamette Valley. Because of the climate conditions, we have decided to pick the grapes for this wine early (at about 19 Brix) and craft the wine in a German Kabinett style.
The wine shows intense notes of apple, honey and grapefruit. This is a sweet wine with an incredible acidity and low pH . making it taste quite dry for its Residual Sugar. The wine has the potential to age for 30 years (if you are patient enough).
Try this wine with some dry fruits, some cheeses (goat cheeses are best), ice cream would also work wonders. This would also make a great aperitif.
The alcohol is 8.8%, acid is 0.84%, pH is 2.81 and Residual Sugar 5.2%
A great value wine. Has some hallmarks of a traditional Mosel riesling at half the price. Had with a pretty spicy Thai dish and worked very well.
