2018 Late Harvest Riesling
Our Late Harvest Riesling golden in color with notes of apricot, honeysuckle and lychee. On the palate, the wine is round and rich, with bright acidity that carries the sweetness to a crisp, long finish.
The 2017 vintage is classically Oregon. Despite a cold winter and cooler than normal spring, ideal weather after flowering created a healthy fruit set, with as much as 20% more berries per cluster than average. Summer was dry and hot, but vines saw little drought stress. By September, everything was on track for a traditional, “normal” Oregon harvest in the Willamette Valley, with Pinot Noir exhibiting outstanding quality. Harvest produced a bumper crop with intense flavor, and perfect sugar and acid levels.
