Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Fresh fruits such as white peach, tangerine and lychee greet you on the nose, coupled with aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom. The lush juiciness of the fruit on the palate is nicely balanced by bright acidity, framing the wine and providing structure. A slight effervescence lifts the fruit and adds to the roundness in the mouth. Notes of stone fruits and honey linger on the finish. The grapes for this Riesling come from the Yakima Valley Spring Creek and Brooks Vineyards. These cooler sites allow for intense flavor development while retaining the bright acidity of the grapes – creating a wine that is naturally balanced.

    (2009 Vintage) "Balanced between scents of apples and herbs, this simple, juicy white is ripe and fulsome on the palate, its lemony, clean fruit flavors stopping on a dime in a brisk finish."
