Trisaetun’s Coast Range Estate is textured with almost a chalky minerality with fresh, citrusy notes on the nose; the palate is strikingly concentrated and piquant, while the bright acidity is perfectly interwoven with the elegantly refined fruit, leading to a long, intense, very balanced finish.
In 2003, Andrea and James Frey founded Trisaetum in one of the few places where climate, soil, and entrepreneurial spirit combine to produce some of the world’s best wines. Today, the family owned and operated winery in the heart of Oregon’s Ribbon Ridge AVA produces small lots of acclaimed Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling from its three estate vineyards.
All Riesling was hand-picked, transported in small picking bins to the winery, chilled overnight, then hand-sorted before being gently pressed into its fermentation vessel. A mixture of oxidative and reductive pressings were employed. Fermentations lasted between 30-125 days in a temperature-controlled environment using a mixture of 70% neutral French oak casks, 20% French oak 12hL ovals, and 10% concrete eggs to produce over 76 individual fermentations.
Pairs well with pork, shellfish, spicy food, poultry dishes, and cured meat.
