My first two Paetras from a Berserker Day case. Not sure any will survive the year to see how they age as they are so tasty to drink now!
2016 Paetra Riesling Dry - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Yamhill-Carlton (3/31/2018)
Pale green-gold color that has a viscous appearance. Nose of pear and nectarine along with some dried flower and dried grass. Off-dry sweetness, resembling a Spaetlese Trocken, with pear, satsuma mandarin and mineral. Very solid wine and honestly quite gluggable. My second Paetra riesling. I’d rate it slightly below the “K”, but this would grace any table where a riesling was needed. Very Good. (89 pts.)
2016 Paetra Riesling “K” - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley (3/27/2018)
Pale green-gold color. Stoney pear nose. Medium-lightweight mouthfeel with ruby grapefruit well tempered with mineral and pear. A really delicious profile that you could drink all day and night. Very Good.
Edit Day 2: The grapefruit has morphed more into a satsuma mandarin taste, really giving more of a German Kabinett profile than it had yesterday. (89 pts.)
