Brooks 2019 Ridgecrest Clone 49 Riesling (Ribbon Ridge)

This venerated Riesling producer takes a rare trip outside of its Eola-Amity Hills AVA home to craft this bone-dry, 100% stainless-steel-fermented gem. This wine is made with the Alsatian Clone 49 grown on Ridgecrest Vineyard's marine sedimentary soils in the Ribbon Ridge AVA. Aromatics of apricots, spicy mango chutney and a trace of petrol start the party. Honeycomb, saline and lemon-curd flavors are joined by enough acidity to wake a bear in mid-hibernation.
