Love & Squalor 2013 Willamette Valley Riesling
100% Riesling | Alc: 12% – Crisp and Fruity
Willamette Valley, Oregon
The 2015 Love & Squalor Riesling Willamette Valley is dry and has the typical stone fruit profile along with citrus, green apple and a hint of tropical fruits, melon and fresh herbs. It is a blend of old vine Northern Oregon Vineyards.
The Willamette Valley Riesling is a multi-vineyard and multi-appellation blend. The key to this wine is balance. The play of sugar, acid and alcohol results in a sum that is greater than its parts. The natural ‘fruitiness’ of the Riesling varietal is kept in check by the grape acids which develop in the berries during the cool nights of the ripening season. When the right balance is reached it is not so important if the wine is sweet or dry. Balance creates a dynamic wine that is exciting to drink and that pairs well with a variety of foods.
“This utterly delicious dry Riesling has just enough roundness to cut through the acidity. Its lush mix of citrus and stone fruit gathers strength and focus as it roars across the palate. It’s instantly accessible yet built for enjoyment over the next decade.” 93 Points – Wine Enthusiast Editors Choice
