Made in a Halbtrocken Kabinett style, this is a glorious example of what Oregon can do with Riesling from the iconic site of Temperance Hill in the Willamette Valley. Exquisite aromas of spiced pear and petrol mixed with elderflower and hints of smoky lime. The palate is wonderfully textured with a beautiful interplay between the acid and sugars. Peach and papaya flavours mingle with grilled pineapple, and a brilliant streak of minerality cuts through this wine to its finish. - Clive Pursehouse, Decanter Magazine

Vineyard Notes
Temperance Hill Vineyard is a Certified Organic vineyard located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The Riesling grapes are planted on the very top of the Postes Verdes block on very thin volcanic soil. The altitude, wind exposure, and struggle create grapes that reveal a strong sense of place.
Production Notes
Release Date: April 2024; Production 255 cases. Produced in the style of the Mosel, our planting gives us ripe flavors at low sugar and high acid levels. Fermented slowly in stainless steel, the fermentation stops just short of dryness - similar to German "Kabinett Halbtrochen".
Food Pairing Notes
This is a very food-friendly wine and is lovely with fish, sausage, pork and your favorite picnic foods. I would eat this with Thai curry, a Ruben sandwich, or a juicy burger.
