Attractive from the first whiff: Our 2019 Riesling a “Best Buy” according to Great Northwest Wine

By January 27, 2023March 1st, 2023All News, Press

Best buy! For the second time in three vintages, Maine winemaker Aaron Peet uses Riesling to add to Cellardoor’s Platinum total, now 18. He came to appreciate Pacific Northwest grapes as a student in Walla Walla Community College’s Institute of Enology and Viticulture, and he purchased this lot from the Yakima Valley’s Den Hoed family. Attractive from the first whiff, it brings a blend of apple and banana, wet concrete and a faint hint of petrol for varietal typicity. Inside, there‚Äôs lovely peach and pear, framed by rocking acidity along the lines of lemon/lime sorbet, giving it a vibrant and tangy finish.
