Elk Cove Vineyards Riesling 2014/15
The Riesling Estate is made from hand-picked fruit from three estate vineyards: Elk Cove Estate, Five Mountain and Windhill. These Riesling vines are some of the oldest in Oregon, with both the Estate and Windhill vines dating from 1975. These older vines give us fruit with a delightful complexity not often seen in domestic Rieslings.
Nose: Positively jumps out of the glass with bursts of honeysuckle, honey and eucalyptus. A woodsy tone of cherry blossoms in springtime tempers the sweetness.
Palate: Very rich and concentrated on the palate with bright fruit accents of plum, fresh green apple and caramelized orange peel.
Finish: Continues to be lively on the long, citrusy finish.
Food Match: Serve chilled with spicy Asian food.
