Anne Amie Yamhill-Carlton AVA Dry Riesling

I am a big fan of Riesling and I enjoy all the Riesling styles and sweetness levels. Dry Rieslings are usually my favorite because they pair so well with many types of foods. Germany is best known for its Riesling wines but places like Michigan, New York, Ontario, Alsace, Oregon, Washington State, and other cool northern climates also grow Riesling very well. The American version of a wines sweetness levels (going from dry to sweetest) would be dry, off-dry, medium sweet, sweet, and ice wine. Of course, everyone detects sweetness at different levels so what I think is off-dry, you may think it is very sweet! But today, I am drinking the Anne Amie Vineyards Yamhill-Carlton AVA Dry Riesling 2017 from the Willamette Valley region of Oregon! There are 4.5 acres of Riesling here that was planted between 2006-2007 on the rolling slopes of Yamhill-Carlton. Anne Amie Vineyards is very well known for their Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Muller-Thurgau.

In my glass, day bright yellow with glints of straw colors. Intoxicating aromas of jasmine, citrus, pineapple, tangerine, and light wafts of petrol. Medium bodied across the palate, velvety, with medium acidity. Exceptional flavors of apricot, stone fruit, nectarine, pear, and a refreshing minerality. This wine has all the wonderful, unique flavors that a good Riesling should have! On the second sip, apricot kept the focus along with ripe apple and hints of quince, lemon meringue, and honey led to a long, lively mineral finish. The good acidity makes this Anne Amie Vineyards Riesling great with foods like Asian dishes, pork chops, baked ham, grilled shellfish, sushi, fresh salads, and medium cheeses. 92 Points! (Wine Splash)!
