Editorial Reviews for Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling Oregon
Earthy and floral on the nose, recalling green tea. Huge acids right up front are brought into balance by the noticeable sugar. The fruit flavors of apricot, red apple peels and citron are intense yet cut with a fine mineral edge. The finish is long and quite firmly structured with an attractive brightness to the fruit. 92pts
Rather leafy on the nose with hints of dried herb leaves accenting the core of bitter melon and dried lime pith fruit. This is fairly sweet with a tense line of acidity helping to add a bit of lift on the palate. The flavors of peach and sweet baked apple appear on the palate with gentle lemon highlights from the acidity. The sweet, fruity character drives right through the fairly long finish where the acidity cruises out over the sugar to take control of the situation and leave the finish with a decisive citrus edge over hints of sweet peach and even a flash of cherry. This is a bit too sweet for my palate but is really quite lovely. 87pts

- Tasted at Lee's Wine Experience 11/7/09
Quite a bit drier than the regular bottling, this had just a touch of sweetness, reminding me more of a Viognier than a Riesling. It was good, but I prefer just a touch more sweetness. Floral, with pineapple and honeydew melon flavors, but they seemed muted somehow, without the sweetness to accompany them.
Nice wine, but pretty sweet...nice sipper when cooking and used it to deglaze for sauces as well. Sweeter than I usually go but nice.
Semi-sweet, crisp, refreshing hints of pear and peach with a slight citrus finish. My favorite everyday wine.
External Reviews for Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling Oregon
Light and refreshing, offering a delicate style that hides its sweetness with lively acidity, playing its lemon and grapefruit flavors artfully. Drink now through 2013.
This is at the sweetest edge of off dry (alcohol at 9%, residual sugar 5.1%) and it is loaded with citrus fruit andmdash; especially ripe orange andmdash; that keeps it lively and refreshing. A well-made, full-bodied Riesling that lingers gracefully through the finish, with a streak of lemon tea.
Bright and lively, this is jazzy with pear, peach, citrus and floral flavors, sweet but balanced with bracing acidity. Drink now through 2015.
Soft and appealing, with peach and floral character that nestles into the off-dry finish. Drink now through 2013.
This German-styled wine is semi-sweet and medium bodied. It has a refreshing blend of peach, citrus, pear and honeysuckle flavors. The finish is clean and crisp.
The scents are powerful, forward and mixed - the winery calls them "fruit cocktail aromatics." At 10% alcohol, it's borderline dessert-level sweet; the acids prop it up just enough to keep the fruit from turning fat. This might pass for a California Riesling; it's done in the same ripe, forward, slightly sugary style.
This winery offers very solid wines at consumer-friendly prices, and the Riesling is no exception. Full-flavored with melon, apple and pear fruit, it is sweet, clean and refreshing, and for the price, there is no better Riesling in Oregon.
The stylistic vision of this wine is that of the Germanic Rieslings. Crisp, with good acidity, a hint of sweetness and ability to age. The grapes were lightly whole cluster pressed. The must was cold settled and clean juice was racked to another stainless steel tank for fermentation. It was inoculated with two specially selected yeast strains, which promotes high fruit tones along with fruit cocktail aromatics. Fermentation lasted approximately eight weeks at 55 degrees F. The wine was racked shortly after fermentation to preserve fruitiness and bottled after fining. Peak drinkability is 2011-2014.
A semi-sweet medium bodied Germanic-style wine. Delicate peach and lychee aromas lead into explosive mouth-filling stonefruit flavors featuring dried apricot and a steely acidity. Notes of pineapple contribute to a clean, well-formed fruit to acid balance. The tart rhubarb finish lingers into spicy red pepper flakes in the mid-palate, refreshing and mouth watering.
