Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) The Firesteed Oregon Riesling echoes the classic varietal character of its old-world ancestors. Aromas of green apple and pear blossom combine with rich flavors of vanilla and lemon tart, which expand on the palate and intensify as the wine warms in the glass. Bright acidity balances the wine's weighty viscosity and eventually reveals a soulful mineralogy. An open bottle continues to improve over several days, a sign that this wine's greatest days still lay ahead.

    Dry, but not too dry. Citris and fruit note are apparant. Very drinkable.
