This aromatic and fresh Riesling features notes of melon and citrus with nice mineral acidity and a touch of residual sugar. A go-to wine for takeout, especially Thai.

YEAR: 2019

BLEND: 100% Riesling

Den Hoed Vineyard – Columbia Valley AVA, WA

ABV: 11.7%

WINEMAKER NOTES: The cool temperatures of the 2019 vintage contributed to wines with beautiful flavor development balanced by ideal acid retention, producing elegant and age-worthy wines with captivating aromatics and character. After handpicking, our Riesling was pressed at low pressure to avoid harsh phenolics. Careful to keep oxygen exposure to a minimum, we fermented and aged the wine in 100% stainless steel, resulting in a lively and fresh style Riesling. Leaving just a touch of residual sugar we tamed the wine’s acid for perfect balance.

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’s lovely peach and pear, framed by rocking acidity along the lines of lemon/lime sorbet, giving it a vibrant and tangy finish. – Great Northwest Wine
