2020 Spirithouse Riesling

91 points!

At the top of Lone Star Vineyard, planted to high density on devigorated rootstock, our Riesling soaks up the morning Eola-Amity Hills sunshine throughout the growing season. In a break from the most recent vintages, we direct pressed the majority of the fruit to capture more vibrance and electric energy. Fermented and aged in a combination of neutral oak barrel, puncheon, and concrete egg, the Spirithouse Riesling strives for nuanced texture and density. Lemon pith, white peach, and wet stone build with creamy depth and delicate length.

2020 Spirithouse Riesling
    91 Points: “A dry Riesling from Argyle named for its former haunted tasting room. Old World aromatics of petrol and pine sap are accented with smoky flint. The palate is savoury, with lanolin notes accenting beeswax, lemon pith and kumquat.” — Clive Pursehouse, Decanter, March 2023
