Notes from Ovum:
"Established in 2011 by Ksenija and John House, Ovum was founded in hopes of producing Oregon wines that are honest reflections of time and place. Our low intervention production method is a commitment to letting the vintage and vineyard shine, not the vintner. Fruit comes first - our top priority is finding farmers that share our beliefs, and then getting out of the way so their hard work can be tasted.
Cuvee notes: Off the Grid Riesling is a quintessential Ovum wine. Intensley aromatic with luscious texture one might expect from a red wine. The first thing you'll notice is the deep yellow color in the glass, this comes from aging whtie wine in Acacia wood barrels (we commission the barrels for our production). Aromatics - ripe apricot, Eureka lemon, thyme. This wine has an unusual aroma that we can only compare to what it smells like when you walk into charcuterie shop...in a good way! Richly textured, 2021 Off the Grid is a mouthful of wine. High aciding provides scaffolding and structure, and the 9gL of residual sugar is barely noticable but lays the foundation for long aging."
