14 Hands Riesling Washington 2011
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.
Editorial Reviews for 14 Hands Riesling Washington
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
