    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our off-dry Riesling originates from one acre on the steepest, coolest section of our property, Nicholas Estate Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. It is always the last fruit to be harvested and is heavily netted to protect it from the birds.

    Immediately reminiscent of bright, golden delicious apples, ripe pears and cantaloupe melon on the palate. Aromas of Meyer lemon, honeysuckle and fresh peaches with quince.

    There's an elegant creaminess in the texture and the fresh acidity inherent in each of our Rieslings creates a fresh, lovely, balanced and softly-crisp wine. This versatile, ageable Riesling is perfect with fresh crab, fried calamari, tempura, razor clams, pastas in cream sauce and more.

    Bottled under screwcap for the first time, this is also the first of our wines to carry both Salmon Safe and LIVE seals. Also, the back label carries the new International Riesling Foundation Taste Profile. This indicates the perceived sweetness in a Riesling, calculated by balancing the residual sugar, total acidity and pH in the wine. This is a voluntary option, and we're excited to be among the first in Oregon to use it.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This gentle, lightly off-dry Riesling was fermented primarily in neutral oak, which seems to have softened the entry without impacting the flavors. Aromatic highlights of honeysuckle and orange marmalade introduce a full palate with a complex fruit mix including raspberry, citrus and orange. The finish brings an impression of cotton candy.
