2016 Hamacher Riesling

"Riesling is one of my favorite wines and the 40 year old vines of the Elk Cove Estate produce some of both the most age worthy and most youthfully charming Rieslings in the new world! Picked late in the warm ’16 season and fermented at low temperature in stainless barrels for almost half a year, the wine is a classic example of its type. It has great finesse yet keeps its power. It has vibrant acidity yet it’s mouth filling, creamy and has an extremely long finish Pale straw in color, the wines nose shows perfumed white flowers, dried fruits, beeswax, spice and a trace of the classic diesel notes of aged Riesling, no doubt a harbinger of things to come. Flavors are true to the nose but with more lime, citrus zest, spice and straw. Enjoy as an aperitif, with grilled sea foods (especially with lime) or lay it down so you can see great Oregonian Riesling. I have had the pleasure of tasting wines from this vineyard after 30 years in the bottle. 'Amazing' is all I could say!" - Eric Hamacher
