Brian Oregon Rizza Riesling 2018
Team Brian made an excursion a few years ago to the state of Oregon, to make American versions of their wines, same grapes, same winemaking. And just in time too, as forest fires coupled with COVID may have made this a one-off experiment, at least for a while.
Like its Tasmanian brother, the Rizza is a riesling via Jura, but this time in a double-quarter-magnum. A little bit of time on skins for texture plus long oxidative sessions under a natural veil of flor make for a delicious foray into the sherry-tinged world of oxi whites. PLAY FREE BIRD!
