A late harvest wine is hard to find at this price (about $11 in my area), and I was pleased to find that I liked it so much. I found it sweet but not cloying, and a good pairing with fruit and cheese. A favorite of my husband's and mine on our "be cheesy, and no whining" nights!

Almost a dessert wine.... but dry whites don't do it for me, so I thought this was great. Not sweet enough to be cloying but not dry or oaky at all. Definitely not for everyone, though.

Refreshing wine with heavy tastes of pear and peaches, sweet for a Riesling, however not as sweet as I was expecting. Lovely pale gold color with a nice floral scent, reminded me of lavender. ~Neko

    On the sweeter side if that's the way you prefer your Rieslings.

    If you need an acceptable choice for a dinner party for persons who favor sweet but light wines and who are relatively new comers to wine - this is a good choice. For those who have trained themselves to recognize more in a wine, they will find the nose to be flat, and the flavors to be muted.

    From the Pacific Northwest, this golden, late harvest Riesling shows a slightly sweet, rich, spicy style, offset by just the right amount of acidity. Enjoy as an apéritif or with light desserts.

    Eastern Washington’s low annual rainfall and cool nights during the growing season make it the perfect area for producing consistently great late harvest wines. Hogue has developed a style with Late Harvest White Riesling that includes a level of sweetness around four percent. Richness, viscosity and crisp balancing acidity without overpowering botrytis character. The Late Harvest Riesling bottling is produced from our best Riesling vineyards, which have the ability to ripen to the required 24+ Brix level. At that level of ripeness the wine develops its trademark tangerine/apricot flavors and crispness. The Late Harvest Riesling has aromas and flavors of dried pineapple, mandarin orange, orange blossom, apricot and powdered sugar. Flavors are rich and sweet, with dried apricot and pipe tobacco complexities and great sugar-acid balance. Pair this luscious wine with bittersweet chocolate or a baked Washington Fuji apple.

    Wine Tasting NotesThe Late Harvest White Riesling has aromas and flavors of dried apricot, tangerine, and powdered sugar with a hint of cocoa and mint on the finish. The wine has excellent sugar to acid balance. Excellent as an aperitif or paired with fruit sorbets, poached pears or warm apple crisp.

    Eastern Washington's low annual rainfall and cool nights during the growing season make it the perfect area for producing consistently great late harvest wines. Hogue has developed a style with Late Harvest White Riesling that includes a moderate level of sweetness, richness, viscosity and crisp balancing acidity with just a hint of complexity from the noble rot, Botrytis cinerea. The 2005 bottling was produced from our best Riesling vineyards, which have the ability to ripen to the required 24+ Brix level. At that level of ripeness the wine develops its trademark tangerine/apricot flavors and being grown in the cooler climate of Washington State it retains its acidity and crispness. The Late Harvest White Riesling has aromas and flavors of dried apricot, tangerine, and powdered sugar with a hint of cocoa and mint on the finish. The wine has excellent sugar to acid balance. Excellent as an aperitif or paired with fruit sorbets, poached pears or warm apple crisp.
