Amity Vineyards was founded in 1974 by winemaker Myron Redford, who moved to Oregon with a dream to make world class Pinot Noir. A pioneer, he was the first to produce organically grown sulfite-free wine. The first vineyards were planted in 1971, with a total of 15 acres planted of Pinot Noir, Riesling and Pinot Blanc. Now with new owners the winery is reinvigorated and turning out noteworthy reds and whites like this Riesling. Grapes are sourced entirely from their estate vineyard planted in 1971 and fermented in temperature control stainless steel. Wine Enthusisast Magazine made it an "Editors' Choice" and scored it 94 points. They said "The deep gold color of this relatively young wine suggests that oxidation is setting in. But wait! This wine explodes into full glory 24 hours after first being opened. It begins with intense aromas and flavors of dried apricots, apples and a hint of ginger, showing impressive length on the finish. It turns into a breathtaking, spätlese-style effort on the palate, with honey, Meyer lemon and ripe grapefruit flavors." Very Limited!
