Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Riesling is Lemelson's first to include wine made from the young vines at the estate Meyer Vineyard. The fragrant nose shows peach, lime zest, smoke and mint. The palate shows the fat and fruit of the vintage with lime, nectarine and quince flavors on the mid-palate. The finish is long with chalk notes gaining long after the sip. With time in the bottle, this wine will reveal more mineral notes and evolve to show honey and hints of petrol, an aromatic characteristic unique to this varietal.

Wine Enthusiast
This wine has just enough residual sugar to take it to the upper threshhold of dry. It's quite full flavored with a thirst quenching mix of citrus, apple and pineapple. Crisp acidity enhances the freshness and contributes a tangy, lemony kick to the finish.

Lemelson Winery Image
Lemelson Vineyards has quickly established themselves in the top tier of wineries producing some of the world's finest Pinot Noir. Eric Lemelson's strong commitment to sustainable agriculture, combined with a winery that blends the latest technical innovations with respect for centuries-old winemaking tradition, reflects the high level of quality that increasingly characterize Oregon wines. An Oregonian since the late 1970s, Lemelson's first career was not as a farmer, but as an environmental lawyer with a strong commitment to "green" principles. His father was the late Jerome Lemelson, one of the 20th century's most successful and prolific independent inventors. Eric Lemelson fell in love with Pinot Noir's subtle flavors and distinct textures early in the 1990s. He planted his first vineyard in 1995, five years after moving to a Yamhill County farm from Portland, where he had lived since 1979. Two years later, realizing that he loved the work involved in growing winegrapes, he planted an additional 30 acres of Pinot Noir and began planning for construction of a sophisticated, gravity flow winery. The winery's first vintage (1999) of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Rose was released in October 2001.

One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a continental climate moderated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture and the production of elegant wines.

Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation vineyard sites.

The valley's three prominent soil types (volcanic, sedimentary and silty, loess) make it unique and create significant differences in wine styles among its vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based, Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. In the most southern stretch of the Willamette, the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA soils are mixed, shallow and well-drained. The Hills' close proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor (which became its own appellation as of 2019) also creates grapes with great concentration and firm acidity, leading to wines that perfectly express both power and grace.

Though Pinot noir enjoys the limelight here, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay also thrive in the Willamette. Increasing curiosity has risen recently in the potential of others like Grüner Veltliner, Chenin blanc and Gamay.
