Montinore Estate was established in 1982 and is a 210-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar
Certified Organic estate that lies at the northern end of the Willamette Valley appellation. Montinore’s Almost
Dry Riesling is Alsatian in style. At first sip there is a silky spark of sweetness followed by flavors of citrus,
pineapple and hints of pear. The elegant, refreshing dry finish comes with palate-cleansing acidity and accents
of grapefruit and mineral flavors. Its relatively light body and low alcohol content make it a perfect picnic
companion. This wine’s strongest point is certainly its lovely balance of fruit, acidity and alcohol. The
juicy pear flavors and traces of wet stones taste so well rounded that it is a delight to drink this wine on
its own, although it also begs to be paired with food because of the vivid mouthwatering acidity, the touch
of residual sugar and solid structure.
|Established in 1982, Montinore Estate is a 210-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic estate that lies at the northern end of the Willamette Valley appellation and along the east-facing slope of the Coastal Range foothills in Oregon.
