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.
"Seven Hills Winery’s new releases include one white wine, a 2010 Riesling made in a Kabinett style with 10.9% alcohol, 1.8% residual sugar, and plenty of natural acidity. Aromas of mineral, citrus, and spring flowers inform the nose of a crisp, refreshing wine that is ideal for use as an aperitif.
