Annie Amie Dry Riesling
Our vineyards are located in the rolling hills of the Yamhill-Carlton District and on the steep hillsides of the Chehalem Mountains, both nestled in Oregon’s verdant Willamette Valley.
Our Estate Dry Riesling comes from the block directly in front of our winery. High sun exposure and unique soils yield an intensely perfumed and expressive wine exhibiting pure varietal character. The fresh acidity and long finish mean you can enjoy watching this wine develop for years.
Grapes were hand-picked and brought directly to the winery in 1/2 ton totes. They were carefully sorted by hand; whole cluster pressed and placed into temperature controlled stainless steel fermenters were it was slowly cold fermented at 45°F for maximum varietal character. The wine was fermented in small lots so we could use more than one yeast strain to give more complexity to the aromatics. It was an extremely cool, slow fermentation that took more than a month to complete. The wine was aged in stainless steel before being bottled and then aged in bottle a minimum of one year.
