    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Washington grapes chosen for the Sweet Riesling are picked riper than the grapes for the dry Riesling. A small amount of yeast is used to encourage the fermentation to stick — or keep it from becoming completely dry. It's fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Like the Dry Riesling, this is another no oak, no malolactic wine. To stop the fermentation the centrifuge is used, which separates the yeast and the wine... this concludes the fermentation. A good amount of carbon dioxide is left 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 — less than 9% — with flavors of pineapple and peach. The Sweet Riesling brings perfect balance to all fiery fare — especially Thai, Szechwan and Caribbean cuisine... or simply enjoy as an aperitif.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A low-alcohol, high-acid, moderately sweet Riesling with far more complexity and elegance than you usually find at this price level. The fruit tastes of orange candy and tangerine, boosted with a little hint of honey.
