Wine Advocate 87 points - While they picked this cepage first, as always, Adelsheim only harvested their 2012 Auxerrois Ribbon Springs Vineyard in the fourth week of September. Zesty pungency of lime and orange on the nose presage a subtly oily and refreshingly citric if pliably-textured palate performance. There is a slight green apple streak in the finish, where I wished for a bit more succulent persistence given what had come before; but this will certainly satisfy - whether solo or accompanied by cuisine - over at least the next 6-9 months.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Super fragrant, with lush scents of citrus, apple and a hint of vanilla, this excellent Auxerrois pushes confidently through the palate and into a well-defined, lengthy, slightly saline finish. Unique and delicious. - Editor’s Choice (Dec 2013)

Wine maker notes
When two clones of Auxerrois (oak-sair-wah) were brought into Oregon from Alsace in 1977, we knew next to nothing about the variety. Still, after tasting some test wines made at Oregon State University, our interest was piqued. DNA testing has shown that Auxerrois, like Chardonnay, Aligote, Gamay and 10 other varieties, is a cross between Pinot noir and an ignoble variety called Gouais blanc. Auxerrois is also the name of the area surrounding the town of Auxerre near Chablis, but the variety has disappeared from that area and all other parts of Burgundy. There are probably less than 5700 acres of it planted in the world. Its early ripening has allowed it to flourish in Luxembourg (even achieving Premier Cru status), but in Alsace, the variety is now mostly used with Pinot blanc in the production of Cremants díAlsace. In the U.S., we know of only two other producers.

Producer
In 1971, Ginny and David Adelsheim purchased the 19 acres that would become Quarter Mile Lane Vineyard. They shared a dream with a handful of families that Oregonís climate and land could one day produce serious wines. A home was built, vines planted, and in 1978, the first commercial wines were produced. Over four decades, Adelsheim Vineyard grew up with Oregonís wine industry. Our passion has only gained strength as our early dreams have become reality. Much of the credit is due to a team of talented, driven professionals who have joined us. They know that raising the bar with every growing season requires ceaseless attention to detail Ė from managing the crop size vine by vine to controlling 180 individual Pinot noir fermenters Ė while staying focused on the big picture. At our core, we are about crafting wines in a style consistent with our place. We combine traditional and state-of-the-art techniques to produce wines that show elegance, complexity, balance, and richness in their aromas, flavors, and texture. In 1994, Lynn and Jack Loacker became co-owners of our company. They helped us re-envision our company so that we could become financially viable while not losing sight of our dreams. That financial stability has allowed us to expand our vineyard holdings in the Chehalem Mountains (and beyond) and to build a winery in which the envisioned quality can be realized. As our company traverses its fifth decade, there will be changes. The management team will evolve with younger talents taking over the leadership of the company. The ownership may evolve as well, but it is the commitment of the Adelsheims and Loackers that our company will remain independent and family-owned. Having reached the quantitative capacity of our facilities, our growth will be focused on ever-higher quality Ė in our wines themselves, in our customersí experiences with our wines, and in our service. It is our goal to be known as one of Oregonís great wine producers. We will accomplish that by continuing to invest in great sites and talent. We will be leaders in our industry, becoming a sustainable yet genuine force for economic and social growth in our state. We will collaborate with our industry colleagues to find innovative ways to market our region and its wines to the world so they have a global presence. We are still true believers in the unique pleasures of Pinot noir and the amazing white wines of Oregonís north Willamette Valley. The singular climate and the inimitable sites of this place are what allow us to create these memorable wines. It falls to us to explain their seriousness to the world
