Poet's Leap

Poet's Leap Winery
Armin Diel, one of Germany’s most highly acclaimed Riesling producers, brings his winemaking talents from the famed Nahe region to Washington State’s Columbia Valley. Poet’s Leap is one of seven distinct wines from the Long Shadows Vintners Collection.

Poet’s Leap Riesling is fermented off-dry, offering flavors of freshly peeled grapefruit, appealing minerality and hints of ripe pear. Bright acidity gives the wine its vibrancy, and a clean underlying touch of sweetness contributes to its engaging finish. Each vintage of Poet’s Leap uses small lots of hand-harvested grapes that are carefully sorted, whole cluster pressed and then fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to capture the grapes’ bright fruit character.

Armin Diel selects his Riesling from a dramatic block of German clones in Long Shadows’ Sonnet Vineyard, part of The Benches at Wallula. Diel also works with a 1972 planting at Dionysus Vineyard and fruit from the Yakima Valley to enhance the final blend.
