Winemaker's Notes:

"Mostly old vine (mid01970s) Riesling, this has 11.7% alcohol and about 1% residual sugar. This is a gorgeous bottle, with floral fragrances that pile on acacia, rose petals and citrus blossom, and then it moves into a luscious mid-palate loaded with apples, peaches and citrus. The wine is seamless adn well defined, with a perfect mix of fruit-forward flavors and the cut and precision of an ageworthy, German-style Kabinett." 90 Points,

About Barnard Griffin Winery:

Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
