Willamette Valley, OR
What we love
Like any good Riesling, this wine is extremely expressive on the nose — they call Riesling an “aromatic white” for a reason — and reminds me of peach nectar, with a strong fragrance of honeysuckle. The wine’s modest residual sugar amplifies the flavors of melon, apricot and pear, making the fruits taste riper and dripping with juice. It’s not a dessert wine; drink it with dinner. Pork chops would be great.
About this Wine
To taste a prime example that proves a little sugar can be a good in a wine, try Brooks Winery’s stunning 2019 Willamette Valley Riesling, from Oregon. At $23, it’s not much more expensive than the down-market Rieslings that might have turned you off from the category — but tastes a whole lot better. Cheers!
