We are at the halfway point with Day 6 of our 12 Days of Wine 2021!
Today we head further north in Oregon to the Willamette Valley to taste a Dry Riesling from Trisaetum.
Trisaetum 2020 Coast Range Estate Dry Riesling
The winery itself is in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, but they produce wines from fruit within the Willamette Valley including their Coast Range Estate Dry Riesling, which is a wine we fell for when we visited and try to pick up again whenever we are in the area.
The grapes for this wine come from their Coast Range Estate which is located in the Yamhill Carlton AVA. The vineyard sits on steep slopes with a range of soils including sedimentary rocks and volcanic basalts.
What does it taste like?
The mineral notes hit you first with limestone, followed by notes of green pear, lime zest, white peach and chalk.
This wine is not available on their site. Perhaps this is released first to their club, or perhaps they do not release the vintages this early (I did pick this up in the tasting room), but you can find their available Rieslings here https://www.trisaetum.com/Our-Wines/Riesling.
The coast Range Estate typically retails for about $32.
