Winemaker's Notes:

It's a delight to offer our very successful off-dry style Riesling from the cool 2010 vintage. The lower alcohol, sweetness and fresh crisp finish are very showy this year. We continue to source from two old sites in the Yakima Valley, with their depth and complexity, with a cooler northern vineyard adding freshness and minerality. Light straw yellow in color, the nose opens with fresh Granny Smith apple, lime skin, and cardamom. The palate is lightly citrus-sweet up front, moving to a crisp, mineral finish. The wine will develop more roundness and richness as the acid integrates, but I find it irresistible now, alone or paired with scallops, Dungeness crab, or other light fare. A very versatile style suitable for a wide variety of occasions.

About Seven Hills Winery:

Seven Hills Winery was established in 1988 to vinify some of the nation's finest wine grapes: those grown in the Walla Walla Valley Appellation. In 1989 we moved to our current facility in Milton-Freewater, on the southern edge of the Appellation. Our winemaking process is a customized, hand-crafted approach that follows the grape from vineyard, through fermentation, aging and bottling, into the marketplace. Our central focus is dedication to providing a memorable wine drinking experience. Limited production may make our wine more difficult to find but always worth the search.
