    Winemaker's Notes:

    With the Riesling grapes from Wallula Vineyard, we've crafted a beautifully structured and crisp wine with bright acidity and perfect balance. The resulting wine shows some apricot and pineapple. It is very fresh and lively, tasting dry. The wine has great acidity with some apple fruit and nutmeg notes (probably from the lees contact fraction). The wine was fermented with its native yeasts.

    Critical Acclaim:

    From a dramatic vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills not far from the Wallula Gap, this riesling is as transparent as any in Washington. Its white flower scents meet fruit that falls quietly between pear and peach. The texture is riveting: the wine's purity enhanced by a racy nervous energy.

    From the biodynamic Wallula Vineyard comes this dry, leesy, chewy Riesling, packed with lime and citrus flavors. The fruit was hand-picked and biodynamically grown... Tart and juicy, the wine brings a mouthful of peach and stone fruits, with marvelous minerality and texture.

    I did not enjoy this wine either with food or by itself. It took a while to get used to it's taste and still could not pair it well with food. Will not order again.

    Riesling is my favorite type of white wine and this is pretty close to excellent.... I like the balance between tart and fruity it has and when chilled it is close to perfection. There is a crispness of apple and a little lime to balance it out....I wish I could say I'm good at wine tasting but I just enjoy wine and not an expert at all. I was once told that white wine is for summer and reds are for winter but this is fantastic at any time. If you like Riesling you will love this.

    Another very good riesling for the price. The perceptible sweetness shines against great acidity. I know acidity gets mentioned time and time again, but it really is important to get it just right when residual sugar is this high (.9%). I tried it the next day and it was still doing well. Definite lemon citrus with some great lime in there to mix things up on the palate. A little guava and a little cling peach come into play too. At 12% alcohol, it was a great wine to just chill on the couch with for a couple hours. Pair with an episode of Man vs. Wild, ice cream and those crappy sweatpants you really need to just throw away.

    Reminiscent of German spatlese in color and intensity, but not sweet or syrupy. Best with food.

    Nice riesling bouquet with interesting floral and fruit notes. Good body but slightly lacking in acid. Finishes sweeter than expected. Tried it with spicy Asian food. It did not really work

    Not Zind-Humbrecht, et al, but darn good riesling, imo. Enough mineral/'diesel', which is rare today in cheaper rieslings as so many tend to float toward some 'fruit side'. Well done, good acid, good flavor, very good QPR, imo. Almost 4 stars; solid 3.5...I love rieslings of all kinds and this was a good find.
