2017 "STEEL DRAGON" RIESLING

100% Riesling 

Columbia Valley

Released May 5th, 2018

125 cases

ON THE NOSE

Aromas of white flower blossoms, melon and citrus.

ON THE PALATE

Granny Smith apple, stone fruit and honeycomb with a crisp, citrusy finish with pleasant minerality.  

METHOD

Born and raised in stainless steel, our 2017 "Steel Dragon" Riesling was hand-picked, hand-sorted and whole-cluster pressed.  After approximately one month, the fermentation was stopped with just under one percent sugar remaining.  This small amount of residual sugar helps balance the wine's high levels of natural acidity, which is typical of the variety, especially in the cooler climate of the northern Columbia Valley.
