Auguest Cellars Riesling Washington 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Airport Ranches, Sunnyside Washington This wine was made from fruit sourced out of the Yakima Valley in eastern Washington. The juice was separated into 4 separate lots and then innoculated with 4 different yeasts. This produces a wine that is wonderfully fruity and has apricot and peaches on the nose, with passion fruit, peach, mango, grapefruit and a hint of banana and flint on the palate. An off dry Riesling it has about 1% residual sugar and is great with a fruit and cheese plate or spicy foods like Mexican and Asian dishes. Recommended by NW Palate magazine: "The aromas of this wine are like smelling a harvest basket of fruit...Viscous flavors of apricot and white peach are mouthfilling, while a wink of zippy acidity on the finish gives verve." Sugar: 1%

August Cellars, home to multiple wineries, is located just east of Newberg Oregon at 14000 NE Quarry Rd. Our tasting room is open daily from May until the middle of October, 11-5 p.m.. We are open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday year round. August Cellars believes that having multiple wineries under one roof allows the consumer to taste several different philosophies about wine with only one stop. Our in-house wineries mainly produce very small lots of Pinot Noirs, although one can always taste some of the more adventursome wines being produced here. Our goal is two fold: - Produce affordable table wines. - Keep our family farm operating. August Cellars is a family owned winery situated at the bottom of our orchards. This farm land was purchased in 1942 and our family has been farming it continuously since then. Being located in Oregon, August Cellars produces, Pinot Noirs, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztaminer and Maréchal Foch. Read less
