Late Harvest NOT. Not thick, not velvety, not sweet, in fact, not any of the late harvest qualities. It is bitter like orange peel. Not even a good Riesling. If you're looking for a dessert wine with good mouthfeel, keep looking. Sorry, cracker please.

I love this wine, it's a tad bit sweeter then the original riesling in my opinion, but it is what I expected to get from a late harvest wine. This wine is sweet and finishes clean. I recommend this.

Quite sweet but rather enjoyable with szechuan food. This riesling might best be paired with the right food rather than on its own.

From the Pacific Northwest, this golden late-harvest Riesling has 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 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.
