Elk Cove 2017 Riesling Estate

We have the perfect climate for this delicate cool weather white wine – there’s enough sunlight and warmth for ripening, but our cool evenings help us retain the delicate varietal character. We whole-cluster press our Riesling grapes, then ferment the juice at very cool temperatures in small stainless steel tanks, producing an aromatic, crisp Riesling with a beautiful acid profile.
— Adam Campbell - Winemaker

The Riesling Estate is made from hand-picked fruit from three estate vineyards: Elk Cove Estate, Five Mountain and Windhill. The Riesling vines are some of the oldest in Oregon, with Estate and Windhill vines dating back to 1975. These older vines offer a delightful complexity not often seen in domestic Rieslings.

92 points - Most of the estate vines used for this blend date back to the mid-1970s. It em- phasizes bright citrus flavors, like lemon and lime, with lemon verbena, cilantro and other fresh herb notes that add detail to the finish. A very fine value, it can al- so age for a decade or longer.
