2016 Late Harvest Riesling
Our inaugural vintage of Late Harvest Riesling celebrates the 20th anniversary of the original Riesling plantings on the estate. Golden in color, this wine has notes of apricot, honeysuckle and lychee. On the palate, the wine is round and rich, with bright acidity that carries the sweetness to a crisp, long finish.
2016 was a warmer than average year for the Willamette Valley, with a perfect deceleration of heat accumulation at the end of an early growing season that allowed a nice pace to harvest. A touch of rain during flowering gave the composition of small clusters with a higher skin to pulp ratio, leading to concentrated flavors and aromas, making 2016 one of the best vintages to date.
