Oregon Rieslings run the gamut of dry to sweet and what I like about Willamette Valley Vineyards' Riesling is how its captures the best of both worlds.

Willamette Valley Vineyards Description: “A semi-sweet medium bodied wine. Bright trpoical aromas of pineapple, supported by lighter notes of anise and apple, lead into a honeyed entry on the sip with a creamy mouthfeel and fruit cocktail flavors. Sweet and sour notes are supported by a clean, well-formed fruit to acid balance leading into the finish.”

In English: What I love about this Oregon Riesling is its acidity/sweetness balance. Not quite as dry as Alsace Rieslings and not nearly as sweet as its German counterparts, Willamette Valley Vineyards produce a solid, smooth refreshing off-dry in-betweener with a strong green apple flavor. A good bet for an evening hosting a group with both wine lovers and wine haters as this bottle will, more likely than not, win over the latter.

Price: $19.95 CAD*
