Eroica Riesling Columbia Valley 2012

Member Review by chriscage:

Tasted Dec 2018....Been saving this one for a number of years now! Coloration is of pale gold, Champagne and hints of slate green, with super clear clarity. Aromas of mature Granny Smith apple, sweet Bartlett Pear, Gooseberry tartness, lime zest, slate rock minerals in the background and rich fungus infected grape. Flavors that follow suit, with big time tart/semi tart apple, of which Granny Smith, Honeycrisp and Golden Delicious come to mind, along with with stone minerality, tart limey zest and slight unripe grape zing. The mouthfeel still makes me pucker a little, which I love by the way, however, the aging process has allowed a silkiness to find its way in, and the finish is becoming buttery smooth. This will age well for another 5 years to come yet!
