Brian Oregon Rizza 2019


| /

From the Willamette Valley, Oregon, and comes in a 750ml bottle, as opposed the usual smaller serving size. America.

Such an interesting wine we have here. Nutty, saline, roast chicken and umami things, but then comes a generous punch of fruit, with plenty of weight behind it. I’m thinking yuzu, papaya, lemon curd, and who knows what, really, with a firm cut of vigorous acidity, chalk dust, a nutty sake-like quality, and plenty of energy on a long finish offering crunch and sharp focus. I reckon this would be top-shelf with Japanese.
