What’s In My Glass? William Rose Riesling


My obsession with Oregon wine has only continued to grow over the past few years. There are so many amazing options to choose from, and at such great prices! I have loved William Rose wines for a long time. I remember my first wine I tried that was produced by Mark NicholI, the 2012 “Prohibition Rosé”. I knew right then and there I’d be seeing more goodness from this talented winemaker! I actually reviewed the most recent release of this rosé here, the “Prohibition Rosé” made of 100% Sangiovese grapes. If you haven’t stopped by their location on 5th and Lincoln – do yourself a favor. Go there and try everything! They have an incredible selection of local options, including those by owner and winemaker Mark Nicholl.

On a particularly sunny day here in the southern Willamette Valley I stopped by the Oregon Wine Lab to pick up a wine that fit the day we were having. I love a good dry Riesling so I picked myself up a bottle. I cannot emphasize enough how delicious this wine was. The color was light and the nose had tropical scents that really showed me that this wine came from a warmer year. The wine itself was light, crisp, and slight effervescent in my mouth. Citrus flavors like lemon peel and floral notes popped. The finish was smooth and balanced. I drank this wine solo but it would pair really well with Thai food or something with a bit of kick.

Loving this label! Here it is folks: The 2012 Dry Riesling by William Rose

The Oregon Wine Lab is open 7 days a week, and is right off 5th and Lincoln. Check them out and try some of their diverse options for yourself. Cheers!

Wine lover and student. I love finding great wines at fantastic prices that are affordable for anyone and everyone. Both Oregon and Washington have some amazing options and I look forward to sharing them with everyone. Cheers!
