Teutonic Riesling Pear Blossom Vineyard Columbia Gorge AVA
Story

“Pear Blossom vineyard is 18 acres total with 16 of them planted with vines and pear trees, thus the name, Pear Blossom Vineyard. It dry farmed, which is our requirement when purchasing fruit. By not watering the vines, it forces the roots to grow deeper into the earth, pushing through various layers of soil strata and picking up more complex flavors which express themselves through the fruit giving the wines a better expression of place- terroir. Because Underwood Mountain is an extinct volcano, the soil is volcanic with the specific type called Chemawa shotty loam which are tiny-sized pellets mixed with loam that allow for excellent soil penetration and drainage.”

“This Riesling nicely showcases our house style of an off-dry wine with ripping high acid, making it balanced and easy to drink and of course making it a perfect pairing with fatty, salty & spicy foods.”
