2012 Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen Eroica Riesling

Winemaker's Notes

The 2012 Eroica Riesling offers sweet lime and peach aromas with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. Eroica is a blended statement of the finest Riesling vineyards in the state. To achieve our Eroica style we strive for beautiful bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced minerality.

    (From 2006 Vintage) "The whites start with the 2006 Eroica Riesling made in collaboration with the Dr. Loosen estate in Germany's Mosel region.
