Aged in stainless steel, with a kiss of new French oak, a mere 2%, the 2013 Penner-Ash Willamette Valley Riesling is charming whirligig of honeysuckle and wet stones, kiwi fruit and orange pastille. It's no less delicious on the palate, with pleasing tension created by bright acidity, giving lift and rise to juicy honeydew melon and a touch of blithe minerality. Sample

Seems like the cooler and rainier the vintage the better the Riesling in Oregon. Case in point. Starting to drink very nicely now and should continue to over the next 10+ years. Dry style.

Hypnotizing aromas of diesel, gunmetal, and talc transmogrify into electric lime, pomelo, and Granny Smith on the palate. This wine has some serious architecture, with eye-popping acidity and clean, crisp dryness.

Great body without being syrupy. Tons of green apple with nice acidity. Zippy minerality.

I don't normally like Riesling but this citrusy, dry version is stunningly good with spices food.
