Winemaker Notes

The Washington grapes chosen for the Sweet Riesling are picked riper than the grapes for the dry Riesling. A small amount of yeast is used to encourage the fermentation to stick — or keep it from becoming completely dry. It's fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Like the Dry Riesling, this is another no oak, no malolactic wine. To stop the fermentation the centrifuge is used, which separates the yeast and the wine... this concludes the fermentation. A good amount of carbon dioxide is left in the wine to create a lively feeling to the wine — although it's not spritzy.

The resulting wine is moderately sweet and refreshingly low in alcohol — less than 9% — with flavors of pineapple and peach. The Sweet Riesling brings perfect balance to all fiery fare — especially Thai, Szechwan and Caribbean cuisine... or simply enjoy as an aperitif.

Critical Acclaim

WE 89
Wine Enthusiast

A low-alcohol, high-acid, moderately sweet Riesling with far more complexity and elegance than you usually find at this price level. The fruit tastes of orange candy and tangerine, boosted with a little hint of honey.

More than just a European vacation hotspot and the rosé capital of the world, Provence is a coastal, southeastern appellation of France increasingly producing interesting wines of all colors. The warm, breezy Mediterranean climate is ideal for grape growing and the diverse terrain and soil types allow for a variety of wine styles within the region. Adjacent to the Rhône Valley, Provence shares some characteristics with its northwestern neighbor—namely, the fierce Mistral wind and the plentiful wild herbs (such as rosemary, lavender, juniper, and thyme) known as ‘garrigue.’ The largest appellation here is Côtes de Provence, followed by Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

Provence is internationally acclaimed for its dry, refreshing, pale-hued rosé wines which make up the vast majority of the region’s production. These are typically blends, often dominated by Mourvèdre and supplemented by Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren, and other varieties. A small amount of full-bodied, herbal white wine is made here—particularly from the Cassis appellation, from Clairette and Marsanne. Roussane, Sémillon, Ugni Blanc, and Vermentino (known locally as Rolle) are also used for white wine throughout Provence. Perhaps the most interesting wines of the region, however, are the red wines of Bandol. Predominantly Mourvèdre, these are powerful, structured, and ageworthy wines with lush berry fruit and savory characteristics of earth and spice.
