Winemaker's Notes:

#66 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The 2008 White Riesling has the wonderful aromas of tropical fruit and peaches. This is a dry style Riesling with great depth and character. It is fruity yet dry which allows it to be served with almost any summer food. Good acidity mingle with the delicate fruit flavors. This is an vineyard designated White Riesling due to 100% of the fruit being harvested from a dear friend, Caroway Vineyards in Pasco, Washington.

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."
