Harvest Select Riesling is made in a medium-sweet style. It offers rich flavors of ripe peaches balanced with crisp Washington Riesling acidity. It’s like a bowl of fruit in a glass! ~Winemaker Notes
Vineyard Notes: Columbia Valley vineyards lie in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains and receive just 6-8 inches of rainfall annually.
Warm, sunny days and cool evening temperatures create ideal conditions for intense aroma and flavor development in the ripening grapes. A northerly latitude gives the Columbia Valley nearly two more hours of sunlight daily during the peak-growing season than California.
Winemaking Notes: Riesling grapes were harvested in October at the peak of flavor. Fermentation temperatures were maintained at 50-55° F to preserve Riesling’s fresh and fruity character. We feature the “Riesling Taste Profile” scale on the back label to illustrate that this Riesling is made in a “medium-sweet” style.
Pairings: Fresh fruit, crab, Asian dishes, mild cheeses, Thai Food
