2015 Brooks Winery, ''Extended Tirage'' Sparkling Riesling, Williamette Valley, Oregon, USA
Founded in 1998, Brooks is a reflection of the visionary Portland native, Jimi Brooks. His reverence for the land and vines made him a practitioner of organic and biodynamic farming. Brooks Wine’s traditionally made sparkling riesling was allowed to age for 32-months on the yeast sediment generated by secondary fermentation. Then winemaker Chris Williams unleashed it on the Riesling-loving world. Brooks is widely considered one of the top Riesling producers in North America and this answer to a German Sekt only adds to that reputation.
