Crafted from grapes grown in wind-blown loess on basalt bed rock in the Selenium Vineyard, Yakima Valley, Washington.
Our Selenium Vineyard Dry Riesling is crafted exclusively with ungrafted Geisenheim clone 239 Riesling grapes. We pick our grapes relatively ripe (22-23 Brix) in late October. The Riesling juice is fermented with native yeasts at cold temperatures for 30 days to dryness and then aged on lees in stainless steel tanks. We stir the wine on lees once or twice a week for five months. There is no oak and no malolactic on this wine.
Color: Pale straw.
Bouquet: Jasmine, citrus.

Ideal with Asian & European cuisine and a wide variety of seafood, cheeses and cold meats.
