Cupcake Riesling, Columbia Valley, 2009
Dry Riesling. The cold nights and long sunny days of Columbia Valley, Washington allow our Riesling to fully develop its lush tropical essence while retaining an elegant, fresh, clean finish. Stainless steel fermentation and extended maturation sur lie create a creamy mouthfeel, with aromas of peach, pineapple and nectarine. Think pineapple upside-down cupcakes warm from the oven. Enjoy with sweet and sour prawns, Thai noodle salad or shellfish risotto. Cupcake: live deliciously. -Adam Richardson, winemaker. Alc. 13.5% by vol.
