Ponzi Vineyards Riesling Willamette Valley 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very complex on the nose with really layered notes of dried flowers, herbs and minerals over light fruit ones. Very lean in the mouth yet very fruit driven with intensely floral inner mouth perfumes with a core of sweet peach fruit that hints at honeycomb. This is really lovely yet stumbles a bit on the relatively short, uncomplicated finish. 88pts

Founded in 1970 in Oregon's lush Willamette Valley, Ponzi Vineyards is internationally acclaimed for producing some of the World's finest Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and White Riesling, as well as Arneis and Dolcetto, two rare Italian varietals. For nearly four decades, wine pioneers Dick and Nancy Ponzi have set the standard for Oregon's viticultural innovation while maintaining an unwavering commitment to a tradition of winemaking excellence.

All 120 acres of family-owned vineyards in the Northern Willamette Valley are LIVE Certified Sustainable, the world's highest standard for sustainable viticulture. Ponzi Vineyards continues to hold long-term contracts with many of the best growers in the region. Driven by the concept that the variety must match the terroir and climate, Ponzi Vineyards continues to set the standard for Oregon and remains at the forefront of the nation's top wine producers. Today, the winery and vineyards are operated under the same guiding principles with second-generation winemaker Luisa Ponzi at the helm.

Light floral nose. The palate is crisp and bright with a hint of sweetness and some butter/vanilla. A solid Riesling.
