    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Columbia Valley grapes that we choose for the Sweet Riesling are picked earlier (at about 20-21 Brix) than the grapes for the Dry Riesling. We use mostly native yeast and ferment at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Like our Dry Riesling, there is no use of oak barrels or malolactic fermentation. We stop the fermentation at about 7% residual sugar, and we clean the wine rapidly to retain as much freshness and fruitiness as possible. We leave a fair amount of carbon dioxide in the wine to create a lively feeling to the wine – although it's not spritzy. The resulting wine is moderately sweet and refreshingly low in alcohol with flavors of pineapple and peach. Our Sweet Riesling brings perfect balance to all fiery fare – especially Thai, Szechwan, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Caribbean cuisine…or simply enjoy as an aperitif.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Sweet and succulent, this is light in texture, offering a juicy mouthful of minty pear and floral flavors that linger on the open finish.

    I like a sweeter riesling, and Pacific Rim Sweet 2009 fit the bill. Crisp, sweet but not too sweet, and a wonderful complement to chicken, pork or fish. As close to the Snoqualmie 2009 Vintner's Reserve riesling as you can get. Delicious!

    Very drinkable by itself or with dessert. Sweet, smooth and tasty. One of my favorite Rieslings.

    This was my first taste of a Riesling. From my understanding of Riesling its supposed to be a very sweet wine, on the bottle this wine was said to be a medium sweet. However upon drinking it I found it closer to being dry. I still liked it but I wouldnt buy it again.
