A new vintage and a new wine from our brilliant friends at Ovum. We could say of course it’s predominantly Riesling (Ovum’s signature grape), this dry white blend is an aromatic concoction of Asian pear smashed with candied ginger and fresh green note (Ovum says fresh tobacco, but I’m undecided). What’s not up for question or debate: this is another wonderful white wine from Ovum!
From the winery: The fruit on the nose is wrapped in earthiness, but the palate unfolds with rich textures and bright acidity...an unusual pairing indeed.
This wine tries to capture the polarizing, quiet stillness and wild wind of the Columbia Gorge. The verve and tension of the wine reflects the chemawa, dusty volcanic soils, and the palate richness is sourced from the warm sun reflecting off of the river. We bring the wine to life through native fermentation and aging in 1,000 Liter, Austrian oval cask.
Gorge Sound is a versatile wine that can be easy drinking if you like--it also has another story to tell if you're willing to listen.
