Riesling

FPO

Riesling has a powerful and distinctive floral and apple-like aroma that frequently mixes in mineral elements from its vineyard source and is often described as "racy." Its high natural level of tartaric acid enables it to balance even high levels of residual sugar. Other frequently encountered (but not exclusive) flavor elements found in Riesling-based wines include peach, apple and pear.

The Oregon Riesling Alliance comprises 38 Riesling producers who have banded together to evangelize Riesling and create a support system to enhance the quality of wines produced from the grape. Oregon’s uniquely cool climate, naturally low yields, and ancient volcanic and marine sedimentary soils give unique character to the wines that its small, family winemakers craft. It is this combination that makes Oregon one of America’s best places to grow world-class Riesling.
