16.66 grams per liter residual sugar Big lime and lemon aromas greet the nose layered over a nice mineral base note with a hint of steel and some heathery floral highlights. Bright juicy acids lend an almost firm feel to this on the palate which shows that hint of sweet roundness balance with the steely mineral acids. Clear and fresh on the palate with lots of mineral character balanced by slightly under-ripe peach fruit and a hint of mango that emerges on the moderately long finish. 89pts

Really nice riesling from Chateau Ste. Michelle. Just a hint of petrol on the nose with some lemon zest. On the palate there's some nice ripe apricot, honeysuckle, tangerine and a bit of flint. This has a nice bit of acidity along with a touch of stone that balances well with the medium to low alcohol (12%).

The 2012 Eroica Riesling offers sweet lime and peach aromas with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. Eroica is a blended statement of the finest Riesling vineyards in the state. ~ Bob Bertheau, Winemaker ~

Complex and compelling, this has a luscious mix of fruits that run the Riesling gamut. It's creamy and textural, fresh and primary, with exceptional aging potential and fine, juicy, natural acidity.

Exudes mandarin orange and sweet lime aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit.

And last of the whites and one of the top Rieslings I was able to taste from Washington, the 2012 Riesling Eroica offers up racy, well-defined aromas and flavors of star fruit, citrus rind, green apple and edgy minerality on the nose. Medium-bodied, off-dry through the mid-palate and clean and fresh on the finish, it's a delicious, textbook Riesling that would be a prefect meal starter or to pair up with spicier fare. Drink bottles over the coming handful of years. Drink now-2015.

Continuing a long-running streak of excellence, the latest vintage of Eroica blends fruit from vineyards in the Lake Chelan, Yakima Valley, Royal Slope and Horse Heaven Hills regions. It’s a rich mix of peach and papaya, creamy and slightly sweet (16.6 g/L). The citrusy acids keep a fine edge on the lush flavors.

The best Eroicas glide across the palate with a drive informed by lime zest and apple, all held by a mineral tether. This 2012 by contrast, while not lacking for energy, lingers beautifully, its scents going more the route of grapefruit and apple, the flavors weightier, the hint of petrol giving the wine intensity, length, even gravitas.

Our new Eroica Gold Riesling offers the best of both worlds, the bright natural acidity of our original Eroica with concentrated, ripe fruit flavors and a touch of sweetness. German winemakers have been making Riesling with Botrytis influence for generations. Eroica Gold combines the trademark Washington acidity with German botrytis influence. The wine offers lush orange marmalade flavors with a crisp finish. - Bob Bertheau, WinemakerTotal acidity: .85g/100mlpH: 2.92Alcohol: 10%Residual sugar: 7.54g/100ml

Light and open-textured, with a touch of sweetness to the apple and green olive flavors, weaving a floral note into the deftly balanced finish. Drink now through 2016.
