14 Hands Riesling Washington 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit was sourced from vineyards throughout Washington state including the Horse Heaven Hills, Yakima Valley, Wahluke Slope and other parts of the Columbia Valley.Riesling fruit was fed directly into membrane presses, where the juice was quickly separated from the skins and seeds.After pressing, the juice cold settled for 2 days.e clean juice was then inoculated with a number of yeast strains to initiate 20-30 day fermentations.Cool temperatures throughout the winemaking process accentuated the naturally clean, fruity character.

Pretty on the nose with light notes of iris, lime pith and some heather honey toes. Medium bodied and while this is lightly sweet its also light and elegant. I would like to see a little more acidity here, but this does have a nice texture as it is and delivers some gentle jasmine, apricot and crab apple flavors. The finish is nicely clean and fresh with a hint of balancing bitterness and surprising length. 86pts

With a label of galloping Mustang horses, 14 Hands bottles are instantly recognizable. 14 Hands Winery is located in the eastern hills of Washington.
