"During the grape growing season, Eastern Washington boasts warm summer days followed by cool nights, ensuring that grapes ripen fully while retaining ample natural acidity. Mild weather in 2011 delayed harvest and the Riesling matured slowly, producing an age-worthy wine of great complexity and natural acidic balance. The Riesling opens with aromas of white peach, pear, orange, cotton candy, and guava followed by flavors of ripe apricot and tangerine. The wine is off-dry with a mineral edge and bright acidity. Riesling is a versatile food wine."
