    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 'Estate' designation is from our oldest block of Riesling planted on the gentle slopes of the winery property. This wine highlights the quality that old vine material can show from this noble grape in the Northern Willamette Valley. It shows a traditional bouquet of pear and apple overtones, with lean, mineral notes on the palate. A pretty wine now yet has enough fruit and balanced acidity to age a number of years with cool cellaring.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This wine's aromas are brisk and lifted, with elements of lemon curd and green apple. Its flavors are bright, lemony and firm, with a rippling acidity to guide the finish. For lemon sole.

    From old vines that offer more texture, steely minerality and nuance than young vines can delivery. You might find less fullness to the fruit, but this more than compensates with its robust depth. Lemon polish, key lime, a bit of grapefruit and much more.
