Riesling has been Germany's signature grape variety since before the Renaissance. It produces a wide range of styles and has a remarkable ability to showcase the intricacies of individual soils and climates. Whether sweet or dry, the grape's natural racy acidity keeps it lively and balanced when young and incredibly sound and complex when old. Over the last two decades, Washington has earned praise for its intense and structured Rieslings.
Our 2006 Traditions Riesling is a great example of terroir and variety. The textbook floral aromas of orange blossom, apricot and white peaches are well supported by the firm acids and hallmark "Evergreen minerality." The palate is lush but lively, and the finish is long and silky.
