Pacific Rim Riesling 2012
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
As wine lovers crave alternatives to heavy and oaky white wines, Riesling is experiencing a true revival (like a phoenix rising from the ashes - the inspiration for our label artwork). Portraying bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apple, the wine exemplifies the harmony of Riesling. The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).
A solid effort, in the mainstream style that you'll find on many restaurant-chain wine lists. Apricot jelly-not jam-flavors carry through all the way, with a clean, crisp, well-balanced finish.
Light, subtly sweet and sleek, with pretty pear and floral flavors on a delicate, silky frame. Drink now. 31,000 cases made.
