This Chardonnay is tempting for the saint in all of us. Light, bright and refreshing with a touch of softness. Bright aromas of slightly toasted pears with underlying citrus notes lead to a heavenly mix of fresh pear and ripe melon flavors. The creamy yet juicy mouthfeel will have you thinking this wine was made with divine intervention. Be good and pair this wine with tuna and avocado tostadas, skillet-roasted lemon chicken and angel food cake.
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. That even ripening gives Washington State Rieslings a trademark apricot and tangerine flavor that sets them apart. This particular Riesling opens with a melange of aromas: orange blossom, jasmine, dried apricot, and tangerine. The palate is creamy, with apricot flavors. A naturally crisp acidity balances the slight sweetness, providing a refreshing finish.
Black garnet color. Aromas of dates, cherries in porridge, black pepper, and creme de violette with a velvety, vibrant, fruity full body and a peppery, complex, medium-long vanilla gelato, berries in white chocolate, graphite, and black pepper finish with medium, chewy tannins and moderate oak. A serious cab full of complexities.
