Weinbau Paetra -Willamette Valley, Oregon RIESLING!

#1 Post by Bill H o o p e r » January 18th, 2017, 3:42 pm

Hi All,

This is my first go at Berserker Day and I’m very excited to be a part of it! Hopefully these offers are enticing. We sure worked hard on the wines! My Background and more farming/winemaking info can be found in the Newbies thread:http://www.wineberserkers.com/forum/vie ... 9&t=136766

OFFER #1:

2015 Paetra Riesling Willamette Valley ‘K’ (Kabinett)

This is the first several harvest passes of two different vineyards, picked to retain freshness and acidity while keeping the alcohol at bay. There was ZERO botrytis, and extremely healthy fruit which was in the mid 80’s Oechsle. After gentle pressing and sedimentation by gravity, it was racked into stainless steel where it fermented spontaneously without chemical additions, acid or sugar adds. After fermentation, the wine sat Sur Lie until filtration and bottling. There are two Riesling clones present, N90 and a Geisenheim clone which give a white peach and citrus element to the wine, the sur lie seems to add a salty, sea-spray minerality and savoriness which plays really well with the floral characteristics. It is very slightly off-dry. In fact, if we were still in Germany I’d label it feinherb at 13g/l residual sugar. I love the balance of it and it has served well as a delicious all-occasion, go-to white. As vibrant as it is, there are years of cellaring and development to go. 11.5% alc, 13 g/l rs, 8.5 g/l TA (270 case production)

90 Points David Schildknecht.

OFFER #2:

Mixed 6-pack 2015 Rieslings

These are all actually Single-vineyard Rieslings, but I label them by AVA because I think it’s less confusing. I make them with the long-haul in mind, but I find the Spätlese especially hard not to open even young.

2 Bottles 2015 Paetra Riesling Eola-Amity Hills ‘S’ (Spätlese)

This was harvested after the Kabinett but before the dry wines. Again, wild-yeast fermented without adds other than SO2. At 35g/l residual sugar and 10% Alc, I was trying to go after a classic 60’s-70’s style Spätlese, where todays German Spätlesen often have 2-3 times as much RS. In this respect, it is more like a modern Kabinett. My main concern is usefulness at table, but damn if it isn’t delicious just to ponder or pound down! Peaches, aloe, lime zest…(70 case production)

2 Bottles 2015 Paetra Riesling Eola-Amity Hills Dry

This is my favorite wine of the vintage. Fermented wild, slow and cold in neutral oak after considerable pre-press skin maceration. This is N90 Clone on loess soil with a sandy-clay subsoil. Very juicy peach, sponti-carob savoriness, paprika and some power. The Pfalziest wine I make for sure. Not even close to ready to consume, but it’s starting to open up…13% alc. 8g/l rs, 6.5 g/l TA (144 case production)

2 Bottles 2015 Paetra Yamhill-Carlton Dry

This vineyard is north-facing in a forest clearing and hence a very cool site. I’ve been working hard to revive it by bringing in lots of biodiversity and trying to revitalize the soil. It is quirky and full of personality, but also completely serene. I get some of the same from the wine which is green and herbal with a lot of autumnal flavors and basil and green apple. Willakenzie soil. It was, like all of the wines, made without commercial yeast, acid, sugar, or chemical adds and fermented in neutral oak. 13% alc, 10g/l rs, 8 g/l TA. (92 case production)

How to order: Follow this link: http://paetrawine.com/shop.html
Add BD #1, BD #2 or both, or multiples of both to your cart! In the event that we sell out, I’ll replace with 2016 vintage.

I will ship when weather permits. $30 flat shipping for the 6pk, $50 flat for a case (continental US). If you prefer, you can e-mail me with your order: bill@paetrawine.com

Please do reach out with any questions you may have! There is a lot more info on the website http://www.paetrawine.com and also in the Berserker Day Newbies intro section.

Thank you!

Cheers,
Bill

Hi Stewart,

Thank you! I have no doubt that they are 10+ year agers. The 'S' is drinking so beautifully now with all of the primary fruit intact. You can peek in on the drier wines anytime, but I'd say give them a good long decant and the fruit will pop more.

Thanks again!

I want to say thank you to Todd and everyone who supported us today! It really means a lot to my family and I. As you all can probably imagine, finding vineyards to farm and implementing farming practices, starting wine production from scratch (basically with the lint in our pockets!) and finding channels to sell the wines is an enormous challenge that takes time. I'm really trying to do things the right way in every aspect of this and I'm thrilled that so many of you have placed value on that!

Please reach out if any of you find your way to the Willamette Valley, I'd love to meet more of you in person. And let me know how you like the wines!

Thanks again Y'all for a hugely successful day and a big round of applause for Todd!

Cheers,
Bill

As someone who has tasted with Bill, I can definitely recommend it.

The "K" really works well with Asian dishes that have both some sweetness and some heat.

I need to try the Pinot Blanc next visit.

Thanks for all of the kind words Monte. The 2016 Pinot Blanc is resting in barrel (neutral!) until April. We did three harvest passes on the block over three weeks which has got to be a record for US Pinot blanc. I think it's going to be remarkable. When are you coming up?

Two trips scheduled so far. One in mid-March with the kids and one in late September. We'll try to schedule a visit.

I received these today. Haven't yet cracked one but was really surprised and impressed with the packaging, with six bottles stored safely for a cross country trip in a rigid, clear recyclable plastic. I've never seen that before.
