Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) The 2011 Eroica Riesling exhibits aromas and flavors of white peach, grapefruit and sweet lime with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. After more than a decade we have truly found our 'Eroica style,' striving for beautiful bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced mineralilty.

    (2006 Vintage) "The whites start with the 2006 Eroica Riesling made in collaboration with the Dr. Loosen estate in Germany's Mosel region. Since the project began, this has consistently been among the best non-dessert Rieslings produced in the USA and the 2006 continues in that tradition.
