Hendsbee Vineyard Riesling 2018 Clone 239
September 22, 2018
Dry, fresh acidity with notes of lime and minerality. Seriously good and highly concentrated Riesling. This wine pairs well with many different foods, from charcuterie and cheeses to baked ham. An Orofino classic that will easily age for 10+ years.
This vineyard is located adjacent to our Home Vineyard and therefore shares many of the same qualities. The Riesling blocks were planted in 2006 and 2008. Cheryl and Lee Hendsbee own the property and do all of the work themselves. It is their fine attention to detail which produces some of the finest grapes we work with. The flat vineyard soil is quite rich and rockless for 2-4 feet depending on where one digs. But once you hit the rock, it is all gravel and river rock for 100 feet. It would be classified as sandy-loam with considerable organic matter.
