"The smallest of Trisaetum's estate vineyards, Wichman seems to improve with every vintage. This is beautifully detailed, with hints of honey to its poached pear, peach and apple flavors. Tangy acidity leaves a cinnamon-like impression as it finishes dry but in no way austere.
Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: 2016 was yet another great vintage for Oregon, with an early Spring, & long, dry growing season. We harvested Riesling from our three estate vineyards over six different dates between September 10 - 30, 2016. Some fruit was immediately pressed without any skin contact, while other lots had 3 hours of skin contact prior to pressing. Fermentations lasted between 30-125 days in a temperature-controlled environment using a mixture of 40% stainless steel, 50% neutral oak barrels, and 10% concrete eggs to produce over 95 individual ferments. All ferments started with natural yeasts and spent 6 months in barrel on fine lees. Tasting Notes: Layers of honeysuckle flowers, mandarin oranges, and the crisp, breezy scent of fresh linen on the nose. On the mid-palate, components of fresh papaya, coconut and pineapple balance deftly with the subtle vanilla sweetness of a sugar cookie. Complex floral components dominate the long and lingering finish.
