The Willamette Valley has a long tradition of expressive, Alsatian style white wines. The traditional grapes of this region have a longer history in Oregon than Pinot Noir does, dating back to the Rueter family Klevner (Pinot Blanc) of the 1880s. Without the interruption of prohibition in the 1920s, it’s easy to envision an alternate history where the Willamette Valley became the Alsace of the New World. Modern examples of Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer certainly support the theory. Brooks’ Amycas, a charming and floral blend of five varieties – Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer – is another compelling argument that these grapes deserve a place among the valley’s vineyards. The wine offers rich aromas of apple blossom, pear drop, lemon zest, peach pit, and watermelon juice with a salted rim. The palate is lean and bright, with a juicy core of ripe melon and grapefruit accented with ginger root. An homage to the traditional Alsatian Edelzwicker blend, this is a zesty and cheerful wine at home with the punchiest vinaigrettes, the potato salad alongside white fleshed fish, or a warm afternoon in the sun.
