Riesling, Columbia Valley, Washington, 2012
Earth, Wind and Vines: Eastern Washington may be remote, windswept and arid, but it's also one of the best places on earth to grow grapes. The Milbrandt family has worked this land for nearly six decades. Today, we farm our estate vineyards in the Columbia Valley using sustainable methods tailored to our unique terroir. We plant native cover crops to encourage beneficial wildlife and we farm each block independently to guarantee the character and authenticity of our wines - Butch and Jerry Milbrandt. Our Riesling is extremely well balanced with aromas and flavors of ripe Elberta peaches, lush grapefruit, enticing lychee fruit and a touch of minerality that combine a subtle sweetness with a crisp, refreshing finish. milbrandtvineyards.com. 12.5% alcohol by volume.
