Sheppard Vineyard is located in Sherwood, Oregon. The land is about 62 acres of a combined, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Niagara. Oak Knoll has been sourcing grapes from Sheppard Vineyard for many years. The area is slightly sloped and gets many hours of sunlight. We’re excited about the Riesling from 2015. A warm hot summer brough harvest two weeks earlier than the previous year. Lots of yummy lush fruit came from this year
Tropical fruits and apricots on the nose. Super soft on the palate. Yummy juicy ripe pears and peaches bring out the summer time of this wine.
Our Riesling is always one of our best sellers. This is a true semi-sweet wine. On a hot day it makes a great summer time wine. Pairing it with spicy meals makes each other very complementary. For more simple items, pair this with a simple white sharp cheddar.
