Chehalem Riesling Willamette Valley Dry Riesling Reserve 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Slatey on the nose with a touch of honey accenting the apricot and papaya seed aromas. Lean and focused in the mouth with fine balance giving this a balanced richness. This has an almost spicy edge to the sweet orchard fruits on the mid-palate and almost a hint of pithy bitterness giving this excellent tension right through the long finish. 91pts

CHEHALEM Winery is known for Pinot Noir, but also equivalently for white wines. And we’re proud of that, speaking eloquently to the first half of a meal as well as the last half. Over half of production is white, ranging from Riesling, our passion in several styles, to ground-swelling new Oregon Chardonnay, Pinot Gris which we do exceptionally well, and to exciting smaller productions of Grüner Veltliner and Pinot Blanc— everything grown sustainably on our three estate vineyards: Ridgecrest, Stoller and Corral Creek.  The climate and our winemaking style reveal wines that emphasize balance, elegance and texture rather than power and size. This openness allows the vintage and three terroirs on which we sustainably farm in the Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills and Chehalem Mountains to express themselves, not with words but with wines of startling distinction. Mature vineyards, mature winemaking, consistently great wines. Read less

Lime and faint green apple on the nose. Lemon-Lime cough drops on the palate. Very drinkable, nice acidity.
