Pacific Rim 'Dauenhaur' Riesling Pacific Rim Oregon Riesling White 2007

Member Review by thecarpetguy:

Most Rielsings are too sweet for my liking but I found this one to be unlike many others. It's much dryer than I expected it to be which made the experience far more gratifying.

First released by Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard in 1992, Pacific Rim Dry Riesling quickly gained a loyal following among Riesling lovers. Known for its fresh and bright characteristics, the wine was a welcome alternative to over-oaked, one-dimensional white wines. As the American palate evolved in recent years toward wines with greater complexity and crisper acidity, the popularity of Pacific Rim Dry Riesling grew. Demand and enthusiasm for Pacific Rim Dry Riesling continued to gain momentum — and the excitement around the wine inspired a radical idea... the creation a winery exclusively dedicated to Riesling. In August of 2006, a small band of Bonny Doon expats moved to the Northwest from California with a common desire to craft the best Riesling in America... thus, Pacific Rim became its own winery. At Pacific Rim, we are passionate about Riesling (in fact, nearly 90% of Pacific Rim's production is comprised of Riesling wines); we are passionate about crafting world-class Riesling; and we are passionate about extolling the wondrous virtues of Riesling. Explore our website and — if you haven't already had the pleasure — try our wines. If you're not presently a Riesling zealot, we're certain that you, too, will soon discover the marvels of our favorite variety...Riesling. Read less

The Pacific Rim Vine de Glaciere is made from Riesling grown at the Selenium Vineyard, picked at about 22.5% sugar; the grapes are then frozen to concentrate the juice. The resulting wine is sweet with pear, melon, mango and honey notes and a kiss of horseradish-like spice and earthy clove. Riesling's natural acidity helps balance the sugar.

This Riesling was clearly made with assertively spiced food in mind. Lots of soft, tropical fruit flavors lead to a clean, dry finish.
