Seven Hills Winery Riesling Columbia Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Showing ripe bartlett pear and a lick of petrol on the nose, this honeyed, extremely vivacious Washington Riesling can certainly hold its own beside stellar examples from Germany. Off-dry (but not overly sweet due to the high acid content) with notes of juicy white peach and a clean, mineral finish. This is serious value for the money!

The aromas here are nice and pure with notes of green apple skins and almost steely minerality. With air notes of greengage plum, ivy, and apricots start to emerge. The off-dry tones of grapey fruit are supported by fine acids, which support the rich, almost figgy fruit giving this excellent balance, though I would like to have seen more freshness to the flavors. Even though this is noticeably sweet it does finish with excellent tension, length and balance. Great Value 89pts

Reasonably soft and fruity aromas of dried apricots and pears. There's a pleasant, soft sweetness on the palate. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel, nice well balanced acidity and a hint of cream on the finish.

This wine has a lot of fun peachy flavors with a good acidic backbone. There's a decent amount of sugar to quench the tooth. I could drink half a pitcher of this stuff easily.

    Fun, easy drinking wine, would go great with perhaps a spicy Thai dish! I find melon and peach aromas, a little pear and sweet tea with some stone fruit on the palate.

    There's a very soft apricot party in my mouth and you're invited. Syrupy sweet with a little chalkiness on the palate. Nice gently prickly finish. Very enjoyable.
