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

Flavors of citrus and apple on the nose. Crisp apple with nice acidity on the palate. Dry Riesling.

Honestly, this one reminded me of grapefruit. Not my favorite. Didn't detect much apricot, but it was definately citrusy. There are other rieslings that I will buy before I buy this one again. :-(

I tried this because it is made by Bonny Doon, but I really wasn't impressed with it. It is dry but not what I would call bone-dry and it does exhibit citrus. There is something in there that just doesn't work for me, maybe as another member wrote it is Grapefruit but whatever it is wasn't to my liking. Which is disappointing because this is such a well priced wine. However, I will try another just to be sure and you should too because it is dry and cheap!

    Great dry riesling. Perfect with grilled tuna, or asian/ latin fusion foods.
