Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw color and a bouquet of jasmine and peach. Displays wonderful yeastiness, jasmine on the palate and great minerality with a dry, bright finish.

Adhering to the strictest Demeter Certified Biodynamic farming and viticulture standards, this wine is a pure expression of Riesling. It is a single vineyard handpicked from Wallula in the Horse Heaven Hills. The wine is aged on native yeast lees for a few months after the fermentation without sulfites in old German casks. Each vintage is unique and a perfect reflection of the growing season due to the low input nature of Biodynamic farming and winemaking.
