"Light and tart, the acidity balanced against gentle sweetness as the tangy grapefruit and apple flavors linger beautifully. Drink now through 2019. 12,600 cases made." (WS)

"($24) Pale greenish-silver. Ripe fruit salad, lime, anise and a touch of minerality on the nose, along with a suggestion of candied fruits. Juicy, ripe and intense, with decent peppery lift to the middle palate, but slightly warm in the style of the year and in need of more lift and definition. I find this less refined in its texture than usual for this bottling." (IWC)

Winery Notes:
“This Riesling exudes mandarin orange and sweet lime aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. After a decade we have truly found our ‘Eroica style,’ striving for beautiful bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced minerality.” - BOB BERTHEAU, WINEMAKER
