Tasting Notes

A unique richness for Riesling with a touch of the high tone key lime Mosel component shining through to make for a more dynamic and complex profile. The aromatics have a distinct citrus zest, key lime, apricot, peach and summer flowers. Thankfully, none of the aromas or flavours dominate, allowing an underlying salinity and mineral component to shine through.

Producer details

A collaboration founded in 2008 between Wine Enthusiast Magazine 2014 Winemaker of the year, Charles Smith (K Vintners, Charles Smith Wines) and Charles Bieler (Three Thieves, BIELER Père et Fils & Gotham Project). We make just four wines together. The Rosé, a Cabernet Sauvignon blend, a Chardonnay, and this single vineyard Riesling.

In the vineyard

This Riesling is 100% from grapes grown on the Art Den Hoed vineyard, right on the outside edge of the Rattlesnake Hills AVA, in the Yakima Valley. Aside from Art’s great farming, what makes this vineyard special for world-class Riesling is the gently sloping, high elevation (1,250 feet) and shallow, well-drained Warden Series silt loam soils. The higher elevation maintains a mountain climate with much more moderate summer temperatures.

Food Recommendations

Pair this rich Riesling with any spicy chicken, Asian duck or a sweet plate of prawns and crab.
