The 2011 Vintage: Very cool and wet Spring and mild Summer complicated ripening in 2011, and clusters often ripened unevenly. A most difficult vintage overcome with late picking and craftsman winemaking yielded higher-acid wines than usual but with attractive fruit.
The Wine: Crisp, clean finish with nice aromas. Good sugar/acid balance delivers tasty, classic Washington State Riesling abundant with multiple stone fruit flavors.
Food Matches: Asian cuisine, soft white cheeses, lightly-sauced fowl and as a delicious aperitif anytime.
