Yellow, straw gold color in the glass. Lychee and stone fruit dominate the nose, with subtle layers of citrus. The palate is composed of ripe Asian pear with a Meyer lemon finish. A hint of residual sugar provides a touch of sweetness to balance the racy acidity of the wine.
2016 True Story Riesling
100% Willamette Valley Riesling
Some of the oldest vines in Oregon dating back over 45 years.
2016 was the third consecutive year of exceptional harvest weather in the
Willamette Valley. This being om fourth harvest we felt ready to branch out and broaden our horizons in the form of a new varietal. A cool down starting September 15th continued until the 1st of October when we picked, and shortly after pressed our first vintage of Riesling fruit. Bright and full of flavor we couldn't be more excited about this new adventure.
An early morning picking was followed immediately by a gentle pressing. Fermentation took place in two state-of-the art stainless steel German barrels as well as a neutral French oak barrel for added mouth feel and texture.
