Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling 2013
This wine is great by itself or as an aperitif. Riesling is an ideal pairing to spicy Asian dishes, seafood and light cheeses and is versatile enough for dessert pairings like caramelized pear and ginger cheesecake and pistachio and honey truffles. Serve well-chilled on the table and allow to warm in your glass for optimal enjoyment of aroma and flavor.
The stylistic vision of this wine is to create a consistent Oregon-original Riesling, focusing on crispness, good acidity, and a hint of sweetness. The grapes were lightly whole cluster pressed, and the must was cold settled. Clean juice was then racked to another stainless steel tank for fermentation. It was inoculated with two specially selected yeast strains, which promote high fruit tones along with fruit cocktail aromatics.
