External Reviews for Hogue Cellars Riesling Columbia Valley
This refreshing, off-dry wine has wonderful aromas of ripe apricot and melon, and forward flavors of apricots, peaches and pears that last through a velvety finish.
Greenish straw. Moderately light-bodied. Moderate acidity. Mild fruit. Mild sweetness. Leaves, minerals, bitter oranges. Bold acids enhance piquant fruit with a warm, lingering finish. Needs some time in the glass to blossom fully.
Light and tangy, just a little sweet, with pretty peach and floral flavors lingering on the delicate finish. Drink now.
Washington State has become a star on the wine map, and Hogue's home in the Columbia Valley is one of the best areas in the state. Look for peach, nectarine, and orange fruit notes with white floral aromas.
Riesling, a late ripening variety, thirves in Washington's cool winters and warm, dry summers. At optimum ripeness it develops a trademark apricot, tangerine, citrus and kiwi flavors with vanilla, clove and cinnamon complexities. Its balanced acidity keeps the finish crisp and lingering. It's flavorful enough to pair with blue cheese and complex enough to stand up to a spicy Thai meal.
Apricot, linden and sweetened herbal tea aromas as well as flavors are found in the 2003 Johannisberg Riesling. There are almost 58,000 cases of this excellent value. Medium-bodied and satin-textured, it delivers loads of tangerine-laced white fruit flavors in its appealingly forward character. Drink it over the next 3 years.
Lively and generous, with a tangy apple, apricot and mineral character that dances on and on as the flavors linger. Wallet-friendly Washington white. Drink now through 2005.
During the grape growing season, Eastern Washington boasts warm summer days followed by cool nights, ensuring that grapes ripen fully while retaining ample natural acidity. Even ripening gives Washington Riesling its trademark apricot and tangerine flavors. Our Riesling has fragrant aromas of apricot, peach, melon, lemon-lime, and a drizzle of honey. The flavors are a delicate blend of apricot and tangerine, with a pleasing mineral edge and crisp, refreshing acidity. Slightly sweet, this is the wine to serve with fresh spring rolls, spicy ahi curries or grilled halibut. Unlike many white wines, Rieslings can evolve and develop complexity with age. This vintage will continue to delight for three to five years if carefully cellared.
