    Winemaker's Notes:

    Gold Medal Winner: 2014 Los Angeles International Wine Competition

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The best Eroicas glide across the palate with a drive informed by lime zest and apple, all held by a mineral tether. This 2012 by contrast, while not lacking for energy, lingers beautifully, its scents going more the route of grapefruit and apple, the flavors weightier, the hint of petrol giving the wine intensity, length, even gravitas.

    Sweet and mouth-filling with a racy acidity that balances this botrytis-enhanced wine beautifully; juicy with lovely flavors and a long finish; a collaboration between Ste. Michelle and Ernst Loosen.

    And last of the whites and one of the top Rieslings I was able to taste from Washington, the 2012 Riesling Eroica offers up racy, well-defined aromas and flavors of star fruit, citrus rind, green apple and edgy minerality on the nose. Medium-bodied, off-dry through the mid-palate and clean and fresh on the finish, it’s a delicious, textbook Riesling that would be a prefect meal starter or to pair up with spicier fare.

    This is my third vintage of Eroica with Dr. Loosen, and I am never disappointed. It is marvelously light on the palate and enhances fine food flavors of all varieties, even prime ribs.

    I'm a red wine drinker so for me to rate a white wine with 4 stars is something. This is an excellent wine paired with teriyaki chicken or a stir-fry dish. Very refreshing.

    A nice Riesling, but I'm finding the Rieslings from the finger lake region of New York are a bit better.

    Great wine. Sweeter than I like in a Riesling. My wife wants more.
