Under the Wallowas RieslingProduced by Stick FigurinePortland - Oregon
Another stunner from Jess Hereth, this single-barrel skin-contact Riesling made with grapes from far Northeastern Oregon is nuanced and complex. Structurally restrained for a skin-contact wine, its fine, silky tannins lead to an explosion of tropical pineapple with notes of gingersnap, coriander, lemon and subtle notes of lily. A bit of a shy guy at first, we recommend decanting or opening at least 20 minutes before drinking to unleash its full aromatic potential. Exceptional.
