Airlie Winery 2014 Riesling, Willamette Valley, $16
Elizabeth Clark remains one of the Willamette Valley’s most underrated winemakers, and her latest Riesling from her Dunn Forest winery in the Coast Range foothills serves as yet another example. Aromas of lemon meringue pie, jasmine and kumquat are followed by dry flavors akin to Asian pear, white peach and dried apricot. Her skilled work with acidity easily balances the listed residual sugar of 1%. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
