Riesling gets such a bad rap. The vast majority of wine drinkers think all Riesling is sickly-sweet and cloying. Maybe good for a cocktail or 2, or to distract your sister-in-law who loves white zinfandel.
But. The majority doesn't always get it right. In this case, the majority is DEAD WRONG.
Riesling, in the right hands, can be delicious. And its fresh, delicate fruit and sky-high acidity are tailor-made for food. Want to elevate Thai or Szechuan takeout? Riesling. Match a beautifully ripe cheese? Riesling. Indian food? Vinaigrette? Garlic? Riesling handles some of the toughest wine-pairing challenges like Serena Williams handles a tennis racket. Slays it.
Washington Hills, from-where else?- Washington State, harnesses warm days and cool nights to create this fresh, zesty beauty. Aromas and flavors of orange peel, apricot, pineapple, and flowers. Granny Smith apple. A touch of herbs. Just off-dry, the touch of sweetness is balanced by searing acidity. One glass turns into another. You'll probably need more than one bottle, so we're selling it in threes.
