Love & Squalor Riesling Willamette Valley 2015
Founded in 2007 by Matt Berson and Angela Reat, Portland Wine Company creates lively wines from younger growing regions, with the purpose of highlighting the underrated potential of the Pacific Northwest. Their 2015 Riesling is made from whole-cluster pressed fruit fermented in steel. The wine is bone dry and thirst-quenching, showing racy acidity and solid structure. Notes of tart citrus, wet rocks, and salt lead to a long-lasting finish.
