Tunkalilla Vineyard Riesling 2011


2011 Tunkalilla Vineyards Riesling is from the latest harvest yet and matches the exceptionally cool 2010 vintage as the two coldest vintages of the Oregon wine industry’s history. The very high natural acid of the 2011 Riesling is balanced by the higher sugar level of 39.5g/l. The fruit aromatics are delicately poised between citrus blossom and subtle tropical fruit, typical of the Riesling variety grown in a highly suited cool terroir.
