2011 WINE ENTHUSIAST TOP 100 BEST BUYS: #1

"Light and sweet, with modest apple and limeade flavors, finishing simple and graceful. Drink now. 32,000 cases made." (WS)

"Minerally, lightly appley and showing hints of ripe peaches in its aromas as it opens with airing, this moderately sweet, balanced offering is light on its feet, fresh and alive with a lovely Riesling texture and a long, fruity, stony aftertaste. It will deliver plenty of pleasure as a stand-alone aperitif, but this one would also make a delicious mate to twice-corked pork at the local take-away or to teriyaki chicken. Pacific Rim is now the Riesling value leader. Reviewed: September 2011" (CG)

"Right on the borderline between dry and sweet, this richly fruity Riesling is packed with flavors of peach, apricot, pear, a hint of mint, and a streak of wet stone. There is a lot going on for such an inexpensive wine." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Because of the popularity and demand of our Dry Riesling and Sweet Riesling, we thought it made perfect sense to craft a Riesling in a taste profile that was directly between our other popular Rieslings. Combine the facts that this slightly sweet flavor profile represents over one million cases sold in the market and that our new Riesling is line-priced with our Dry Riesling and Sweet Riesling, it's a homerun proposition.

As wine lovers crave alternatives to heavy and oaky white wines, Riesling is experiencing a true revival (like a phoenix rising from the ashes — the inspiration for our label artwork). Portraying bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apple, the wine exemplifies the harmony of Riesling. The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).
