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.

Critical Acclaim

"Light, refreshing and off-dry, with pretty peach, pineapple and floral aromas and flavors, echoing enticingly. Nicely knit."

Great value. Great taste, nice apple/fruity flavors, not too sweet. Perfect for a warm sunny day...

Great body and acid. Hardly a suggestion of petrol. Bracing, not flabby. Drinks almost like a spätlese. Terrific value. I re-ordered a case.
