Oregon’s North Willamette Valley shines with cool-climate varieties, which the efforts with Riesling by their winemakers go overlooked much too often. Bryan Weil, an emerging star for Alexana in the Dundee Hills, skillfully splits his time with Rain Dance and the Austin family. His work here with the vineyard established by Nick and Sheila Nicholas is alluring with whiffs of lime and white peach. Those are mirrored on the bright and racy palate that’s capped by a sense of minerality. It was voted Best Riesling at the 2019 Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition.
