Milbrandt Vineyards Riesling Columbia Valley Traditions 2009

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Aromas of pear, lime zest and mineral. Polished and silky on the palate with green apple and floral flavors. Off-dry finish. Nice, crisp and fresh. Vibrant and with nice balance. 3/24/12

Farming is in our blood. Our parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles all made their living working the land. Eastern Washington is in our blood. We came here as young children and have always called it home. When we planted our first vines in 1997 we were entering uncharted territory. Today, we farm 13 distinct estate vineyard sites totaling nearly 1600 acres. Our grapes are purchased by some of the most prestigious wineries in the state. Our own winery, launched in 2005, produces highly-individualistic wines from our estate and neighboring vineyards. Jim McFerran, one of the foremost viticulturists in Washington, joined us back in 1997 to help with the intricacies of planting. We were very careful about matching the right variety to the right site. Our goal was to be the best growers in the state. From the start, demand for our grapes was immediate and overwhelming. As farmers, there is nothing more satisfying than controlling the quality and style of your product from start to finish. In June of 2007, under the direction of veteran winemaker Gordon Hill, we launched the Milbrandt Vineyards label. Read less

Bright and lively, this is barely off-dry, showing juicy apple and lime flavors that linger softly. Drink now. 4,704 cases made. -HS The new releases begin with the 2009 Traditions Riesling, made in a just off-dry Kabinett style. Minerals, citrus, and spring flowers lead to a forward, friendly wine with crisp, bright flavors and good balance. Drink this solid value over the next 1-2 years.

Highly aromatic Riesling with traces of ripe apricots, Elberta peaches, honey, zest of tangerine, and orange blossoms.
