Milbrandt Vineyards Riesling Columbia Valley Traditions 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Green straw in color, our Riesling bursts with aromatics of linalool, ripe Elberta peaches and apricots. Balanced and refreshing, this wine begins with fruit and a hint of sweetness. The finish is crisp, cleansing the palate and inviting the wine drinker to enjoy more food and wine. Our Riesling pairs seamlessly with cuisine that has multiple layers of flavors such as Cajun, Asian and German.

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

Though technically off-dry, this tastes tart and racy, following its lively aromatics with crisp citrus-fruit flavors of Key lime, Satsuma orange, and ripe apricots. The fruit sources — Evergreen and Wahluke Slope vineyards — are among the best in Washington for Riesling.
