Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling Oregon 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Great by itself, or try serving this wine with light, creamy pastas, chicken in brown mushroom sauce or seasonal fruit desserts like pineapple upside-down cake. Serve well chilled on the table and allow to warm in your glass for optimal enjoyment of aromas and flavor.

Founded in 1983 by Oregon native, Jim Bernau, with the dream of creating world-class Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley Vineyards has grown from a bold idea into one of the region’s leading wineries, earning the title “One of America’s Great Pinot Noir Producers,” from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Willamette Valley Vineyards approach is to grow, by hand, the highest quality fruit to produce wines of distinction, that are truly expressive of the varietal and the place where they are grown. All the vineyards, the Estate Vineyard, Tualatin Estate, and Elton vineyard, have been certified sustainable through LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe programs since 1997. In 2007, Willamette Valley Vineyards became the first winery in the world to use sustainable cork stoppers certified by the Rainforest Alliance and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards. In 2010, Willamette Valley Vineyards released their first Oregon Certified Sustainable Wine (OCSW). Willamette Valley Vineyards commitment to sustainable practices in the vineyard and winery is based on the convictions that as stewards of the land they have an obligation to walk as softly as possible, and that winegrapes grown naturally in healthy soils produce superior quality wines. Willamette Valley Vineyards also produces wines under the Griffin Creek and Tualatin Estate labels. Read less

Tight and chalky on the nose with faint aromas of white fruits, apples and flowers. Sweet on entry and rather viscous in the mouth this has some treale flavors early on the palate followed by peach jam and baked apple. rather soft in the mouth, this could use some more acid to liven things up a bit. There’s actually probably a good amount of acid here, just not enough to balance the sweetness which does support some attractive baked apple and orange marmalade flavours on the backend that pick up a hint of balsamic spice before ending rather quickly on the short and sweet finish. 83pts
