2006 It is about time to release our 2006 Dry Riesling to general consumption. This wine is our largest bottling and it is also our signature wine. The blend comes mainly from the Columbia Valley of Washington State with a splash of Rheinhessen wine that we bring from our dear Friend Johannes Selbach in the Mosel. We thrive to achieve a dry profile (below the 0.9% Residual Sugar line that the German call â€œtrockenâ€) with low alcohol (below 12.5%) and plenty of minerality. The final wine is very impacted by the winemaking decisions of low sulfites and sur lies aging for six months. The nose is impacted by the dual fruit sourcing; The riper style from Washington (apricot, tangerine) is blended with the more floral German style (jasmine, lilac). On the palate, the wine is crisp and straight forward with some yeastiness from the sur lies aging. It is a very versatile wine and I have yet to find a dish that does not work with it. 2006 was a great vintage in Washington and in Germany and I think it shows in the quality of this wine.
