Winemaker's Notes:

It's hard to resist the intense and vibrant flavors of peach, orange peel, apricot and apple found in this lovely Riesling. Crisp and refreshing with a cleansing finish.

This off-dry Riesling pairs well with summer foods such as soft cheeses, and light seafood and poultry dishes.

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."
