    Harper Voit's Willamette Valley Riesling received 94 points and a Cellar Selection rating for good reason:
    "Scents of pollen, honey, tea and apricot lead to a mouthful of minerality. A long finish, this Riesling has classic varietal elements but with drier undertones. Gnarly, and moss covered roots extend deep into the volcanic soil of this biodynamic beauty."
    We often hear from customers that they shy away from Riesling for concern that it is too sweet. But this Riesling from the Willamette Valley is anything but sweet; it is wonderfully balanced and dry.

This vibrant acidity cuts through the fruit and brings the wine in terrific balance - making it a perfect pairing wine for all sorts of cuisine and perfect for the summer months.Read More »
