14 Hands Riesling Washington 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Gris grapes were picked around 21 Brix to capture their bright, juicy style. After pressing the fruit quickly, the juice was cold settled for two days.The clean juice was inoculated with M2 & VIN13 yeasts initiating cool 14-20 day fermentations in stainless steel tanks. A small amount of Chardonnay and Riesling were added to the blend to enhance mouthfeel and aromatics.The wine was filtered just prior to bottling to ensure freshness.

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

FLAVOR PROFILE: This crisp Riesling shows bright flavors of apple, pear and apricot with an ideal balance of minerality and acidity, ending with an intriguing sweet, tart finish.

In just a few years 14 Hands Riesling production has jumped from around 15,000 to more than 700,000 cases. Clearly the brand is doing something that consumers love. This is a fairly dry style, with forward, fruity flavors of ripe orange, apple and apricot. The length and concentration are spot on.

Soft and gentle, showing pretty pear and lemon custard flavors in modest proportions. Finishes off-dry. Drink now.

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