Wallula Vineyard Biodynamic Riesling 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Biodynamic Cuve Columbia Valley's Horse Heaven HillsAdhering to the strictest Demeter Certified Biodynamic farming and viticulture standards, this wine is a pure expression of Riesling. People often ask, "What do you do at the winery to make the winemaking Biodynamic?" Well that's easy, we do nothing.absolutely nothing. If we would list the ingredients on the label, they would read: Biodynamic grapes, Sulfites below 100ppm, yeast hulls and bentonite (used for protein stability). The resulting wine is a piece of art and the truest form of Riesling.2007 was well suited for Biodynamic wines because the acidity in the grapes was high. The wine aromas are fairly ripe with some guava and grapefruit notes. The wine was aged on lees for a few months and displays wonderful yeastiness, jasmine on the palate and great minerality with a dry, bright finish. The alcohol is 13.5%, acid is 0.63%, pH is 3.35 and Residual Sugar is 0.76%.Food PairingBecause of the final alcohol content (13.5%), we would recommend something with subtle richness, such as a chicken with a creamy sauce or a fish with a beurre blanc.UPC 8 99552 10827 8Shipping States:Pacific Rim currently ships to the following states:California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, New York, Washington, Oregon and Texas

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

minerals and caramel make a strange fascinating pairing. well contained acid. this is a great pairing for thai food. A little expensive for me though.
