Reustle – Prayer Rock Vineyards 2014 Matrix White Wine, Umpqua Valley, $24

By on May 8, 2016

reustle-prayer-rock-vineyards-matrix-white-2014-bottleSouthern Oregon winemaker Stephen Reustle grows a variety of white grapes across his Prayer Rock Vineyards estate near Sutherlin – Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Sèmillon and Viognier – but his Muscat takes the lead in this blend. It shows a beautifully tropical nose of Ambrosia Salad, lychee and bubble gum. Inside, those tropical tones are presented in a fruity yet dry fashion with a touch of stevia in the finish. Enjoy with delicate white fish or on the deck with a cheese plate.
