Keep it natural, baby.
This wine is fermented with wild yeast collected from the vineyard by making a pied de cuvee yeast starter a couple weeks before the harvest. Then the active yeast from the vineyard is used to kick-start the fermentation. All our wines are fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels. Our process is minimal and fairly hands off. This Riesling nicely showcases our house style of an off-dry wine with ripping high acid, making it balanced and easy to drink.
All cool climate, all the time. Teutonic Wine Company is a small-production winery that strives to make the finest German-style wines in Oregon. The climate in Germanys Mosel region, famed for producing some of the worlds finest Rieslings, is ideal because of its cooler growing climate which allows the fruit to hang longer on the vines without over ripening. A longer hang time gives the fruit more time to pull up complex flavors from the soil. Therefore, the vineyard sites Teutonic sources its fruit in Oregon are located in cooler areas and at higher elevations. They only work with dry-farmed vineyards (non-irrigated farms) so that the roots grow deep into the earth, drilling through many layers of soil strata, absorbing the various mineral components from the terroir.
