Great Northwest Wine

Great Northwest Wine- "Best Buy! Idaho's largest production of Riesling outside of sister property Ste. Chapelle takes on a more Alsace approach, starting with aromas of petrol, baked apple, kiwi and lemon. The residual sugar of 2.4% takes this down a path akin to late harvest at the start, but there's plenty of acidity to balance as the flavor profile features peach, apricot and lingering lime."

"Broad and peachy, this ripe Riesling has plenty of heft in its thick stone fruit flavors."
