    Winemaker's Notes:

    To make our Dry Riesling, we pick our grapes relatively early (21-22.5 Brix). The Riesling juice is fermented at cold temperatures for 30 days and then aged in stainless steel tanks. We leave our dry wines sur lie (which means that we keep the wine on the yeast lees to increase the mouthfeel of the wine) post fermentation for five months and we stir the lees once or twice a week. We use no oak and no malolactic on this wine it's as pure and unmanipulated as it gets. For our Dry Riesling, we blend 20% of German Riesling wine selected by Johannes Selbach in the Mosel region to 80% of our Columbia Valley Riesling. The German Riesling lends great depth and acidity, as well as low alcohol.

    The wine is crisp, dry and lush with flavors of citrus, jasmine and minerals. Our Dry Riesling is endlessly versatile and harmoniously complements the world's most vibrant and flavorful cuisine from Asian to European to a wide variety of seafood, cheeses and cold meats.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Tart, chewy, tangy, mixing apple, lemon, grapefruit and pear—lots of fruit with pear skin phenolics. It’s dry, but not stripped, full and fleshy, with the low sulfur giving it less sharpness and a broader middle.

    Light, bright, dry and juicy, with green apple and floral flavors, hinting at lemon as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2011. 50,000 cases made.
