Adelsheim Auxerrois 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite perfumed on the nose with hints of apples and flowers over a gently spicy, nutty base. This is bright and vibrant in the mouth, with assertive green pear and lime flavors and a terrific texture that shows a hint of roundness but relies on the acidity to remain succulent and nervous. There's a nice white floral note on the back end, along with dusty mineral notes and citrus pith flavors that extend over the long, energetic finish. This is great. 91 points

David Adelsheim first planted the grapes of northern Europe in Oregon’s Willamette Valley in 1972 because he believed that fine and distinctive wine could be created in the cool climate of this unknown place. As the industry advanced, he realized that this new region could only succeed if all its growers and winemakers aimed for the highest quality… and he led the collaborative charge to achieve that goal by writing Oregon’s labeling regulations, setting up the system for importing grapevine clones from Europe, and helping found most of the organizations and events that define the industry. Today a new generation of passionate Adelsheim staff continues the tradition of leadership of the Oregon industry in areas such as sustainability, marketing of brand Oregon, grape and wine research, and the ongoing evolution of wine style.  In our vineyards and winery, we merge traditional and modern techniques to craft wines that are elegant, complex, rich, age-worthy, yet consistently alluring.

There are aromas of juicy apple, pear, whitepeach and honey in the nose of this wine. Inthe mouth these fruits reappear together withsubtle flavors of fennel and tarragon. Withits perfect textural balance of acid, alcoholand fruitiness, the wine has body and lengthon the palate, yet remains fresh. Auxerrois iswonderful on its own as an aperitif, or withmany courses at the beginning of a meal. Itwould pair beautifully with crab salad orcured salmon with tarragon dressing.
