Amity Vineyards Riesling Willamette Valley 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite mineral driven on the nose with a waxy edge to the slightly dried yellow fruit tones. Light on entry with mineral tones and a pithy edge to the light, fresh citrus fruits tones up front which turn more towards green apple on the back end. Cleansing acids drive through the fresh finish. 88pts

Amity Vineyards is located in Yamhill County, Oregon just 7 miles from McMinnville. This region has been recognized as one of the premier Pinot noir producing areas in the world-rivaling the best in Burgundy. As one of Oregon's pioneer wineries, Amity Vineyards helped establish the area's reputation for world class Pinot noir as early as 1985, the year Robert Parker "Discovered Oregon," praising Amity Vineyards' 1983 Winemaker's Reserve Pinot noir. Since the early days Amity has won many national and international awards. Although, best known for their Pinot noir, they have won awards for Riesling, Pinot blanc, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, and Gamay noir. Acclaim has also come from wine critics and writers such as Roy Andries DeGroot, Harvey Steinman, Anthony Dias Blue, Coleman Andrews, Robert Parker & Terry Robbards. Read less
