A very floral nose full of orange blossoms, honeysuckle, sweet lemon, peach and raspberry tones, a very pretty nose, just a hint of lemon verbena, a touch hot - huge acids but fairly sweet as well, not showing great integration, some floral tones, then figgy and fleshy with a bit of apple butter and a touch of tea before finishing with fairly intense sweet peaches and lingering lemony acidity. 86pts

This wine has had good reviews from major sources. I don't agree with those. I have had at least 15 vintages of this wine and have never been impressed. The 2011 is no exception. Riesling has never done well being early harvested, with only a few exceptions. This wine has that early harvest simplicity. Light floral nose, good acid balance, light color, citrus and slight honey are found here. This wine is a shadow of their single vineyard wines. Lighter style wine with a short finish.

This is my go to wine. It is light and refreshing. Not to sweet. Pairs well with pasta. And garlic dishes too! No heavy after taste. Chill well and enjoy!

A very light nose of peach and general fruitiness. In the mouth the flavors of roast peach and pear are abundant but they are balanced well by a pop of acidity. Overall an easy drinking wine but nothing that will blow you away.

Light straw bright, nose of stone fruits & flowers; flavors of dried peach, grapefruit and quince. Refreshing.

The nose is a bit tight, but there are notes of citrus, floral , and stone. Mandarin orange predominates the palate along with a bit of peach. Off dry, with a finish longer than I expected.

This crisp white riesling has been one of my everyday wines. Not too sweet, with a hint of citrus and no strong after taste. Served cold in the colmbia basin summer nights, it is quite refreshening. The local liquor store carries it for about $7.

Bright green apples on the nose. Sweet, sweet apples in the mouth. Sweet works well with this wine, but its inconsistent from the nose.

Our Columbia Valley Riesling is a blend of Riesling from throughout Washington's Columbia Valley. We craft it to be a refreshing, off-dry Riesling vintage after vintage. The wine delivers sweet lime and peach character with subtle mineral notes. This is our "any day Riesling" that is a pleasure to drink and easy to match with a variety of foods. - Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker ** SOLD OUT **

Soft, delicate and appealing for its pretty pear and floral aromas and flavors, lingering on the off-dry finish. Drink now. 443,000 cases made.

A northerly latitude gives the Columbia Valley roughly two more hours of sunlight daily during the peak-growing season than California, increasing the region s ability to ripen fruit.

Soft and open-textured, with pretty pear and nectarine flavors that ride on a delicate frame. Offers just enough acidity to stay fresh. Drink now.

A marvelous effort in a difficult year, this textbook Washington Riesling is bursting with apricot and peach goodness. Round and polished, it’s long and textured, with an excellent wash of minerality.

Winemaker's Notes:

• Riesling grapes were harvested in October at the peak of fl avor. • Fermentation temperatures were maintained at 50-55 degrees F to preserve Riesling’s fresh and fruity character, using an assortment of yeasts for added complexity. • We feature the “Riesling Taste Profi le” scale on the back label to help people understand that this Riesling is made in a “medium-dry” style.
