Using grapes sourced from the Rogue Valley, owner/winemaker Scott Flora opted to make this Riesling on the dry side. Containing a mere 2 grams of residual sugar, higher acidity levels create a wonderful balance in the finished wine. That acidity also increases the aging potential– at least to 2026 and likely even longer!

If you’re not aging your Oregon Rieslings, I encourage you to do so… they gain more complexity and nuance the older they get!
