Vineyard Notes

This vineyard was planted in 1978 and was one of the first vineyards planted on Red Mt. Its elevated location remains frost free until winter arrives – resulting in the opportunity to make late harvest style wines almost every year. The vineyard’s soil is known as “Hezel” silt loam. Average rainfall on Red Mt is less than 6 inches per year and it all occurs during winter.

Winemaker Notes

Grown in the Red Mountain appellation of Washington state, Riesling grapes were intentionally left on the vines past their typical harvest date to develop very high sugar content. These grapes were harvested at 25.1 brix, pressed into juice and fermented in stainless-steel tanks at 55° to preserve Rieslings luscious fruit flavors.

Pairings

mild and soft cheeses like brie, lemon pound cake, cheesecake, Crème Brûlée
