Hogue Cellars Riesling Columbia Valley Genesis 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The flavors are tangy offering pear and grapefruit in equal quantities but the balance is soft and a bit sweet finishing with pleasing gentility

THE HOGUE CELLARS™, founded in 1982 by Mike and Gary Hogue, is located in Eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, the premiere grape growing region of the state. The climate and soils of the Columbia Valley produce grapes with intense fruit flavors and high natural acidity. The wines have a liveliness and ripe, zesty fruit flavors that make them ideal complements to a wide range of food.

Soft and appealing for its generous peach and floral flavors, a straight-ahead Riesling with disarming simplicity. Drink now.

Rich and crisp, the wine has aromas and flavors of orange, grapefruit zest, peach and lush pineapple. The balance between its racy acidity and moderate sweetness makes the Genesis Riesling wonderful as an aperitif or a delicious complement to spicy Southeast Asian dishes such as chicken satay

Floral and spicy overtones add interest to the modest citrus and green apple flavors in this fragrant white. Drink now.

The 2008 Riesling Genesis exhibits an alluring nose of slate/mineral, peach, and apricot. Just off-dry and nicely balanced by lively acidity, it will provide pleasurable drinking for another 2andndash;3 years.
