Patton Valley don’t grow any Riesling, unfortunately. But there are a bunch of wonderful people that do, and they let them buy some so they can produce this lovely wine! Still or, in this case, sparkling Riesling always enchants, and this wine sings the siren songs of none other than Circe herself. Sourced from two organic vineyards in the Willamette Valley, they pick these on the same day and naturally ferment them together, allowing their tension to weave together something dynamic, beautiful and lush. The sparkle makes it magical.
Fizzy fun with classic Riesling notes of white peach, crisp apple, and biscuit on the nose. The palate is refreshing, energetic, and fruit forward with apples, pears, and stone fruit, with a kind of Fresca-like mouth feel. Spicy food, cured meats, or something salty will pair tremendously with this very unique wine.
