2014 Willamette Valley Late Harvest Riesling

2014 Willamette Valley Late Harvest Riesling
2014 Willamette Valley Late Harvest Riesling

At 5.6% residual sugar and 11.1% alcohol, this is a bright, perfumed and versatile dessert wine, lighter in the perception of sweetness than many late-harvest wines. It would also serve as an excellent pairing with rich, creamy appetizers, because the fresh acidity will beautifully cut the creaminess of cheeses or foie gras. In the glass, the aromas of baked apples, apple pie or Gravenstein applesauce dominate; on the palate, the racy acidity balances the sweetness, which makes it a natural with combinations such as Rogue Valley blue cheese and Harry & David’s fabulous southern Oregon pears.

Robert Brittan left Stags’ Leap Winery in Napa after 16 years as Winemaker and Estate Manager to fulfill his dream of making Pinot Noir and Syrah from unique sites in cooler climates. His winemaking career began in his dorm room at Oregon State University, where he was a physics and philosophy major.

Being both geeky and broke, he soon realized that alcohol was an attractant to co-eds, so he began his career in fermentation sciences in order to get a date. He ultimately completed his education at UC Davis and moved to Napa Valley, where he made wines for Far Niente, Saint Andrews and Stags’ Leap Winery.

With over 40 years of experience growing grapes and making wine, he brings a significant amount of viticultural and winemaking knowledge to Brittan Vineyards. He has always had a passion for Pinot Noir, and hopes that with the fruit from the Brittan estate vineyard in the foothills of the Coastal Range, he can bring a new voice to the McMinnville AVA, and help form the style and definition of Pinot Noir from this recently designated winegrowing region.
