External Reviews for Barnard Griffin Riesling Columbia Valley
Winemakers Notes: Bright acidity with a medley of floral, spice and orange blossom which has characterized our Riesling for thirty years. The finish is dry and refreshing. A very food-friendly Riesling!
Light, refreshing and off-dry, with pretty peach, pineapple and floral aromas and flavors, echoing enticingly. Nicely knit. Drink now through 2011.
In 2008, owner and winemaker Rob Griffin, who consistently makes a delicious and amazingly affordable Riesling, benefited from one of the coolest vintages Columbia Valley has seen in decades. Griffin sourced the majority of the grapes for this wine from the north-facing Caroway vineyard planted in Horse Heaven Hills. The grapes enjoyed a long hang time without over ripening, helping the wine retain crisp acidity and a distinctive floral note.
Spice, apple, light peach and a gentle fruitiness characterize this Riesling. There are deeper notes as well, skin phenolics that add texture and earthiness. But fruit is front and center, with crisp acidity right behind it.
