Pacific Rim sweet Riesling is sourced from the Columbia valley, WA. !00% Riesling. Pale gold with wonderfully aromatic notes of honey, pear and orange blossom. Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling is moderately sweet with bright acidity. The flavors of pineapple and white peachwork well with the refreshingly low alcohol content.
We pick our Riesling grapes early (20-21 Brix). We use only native yeast and ferment at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks – there is no use of oak barrels or malolactic fermentation. We stop the fermentation at about 7% residual sugar, and we clean the wine rapidly to retain as much freshness and fruitiness as possible. We leave a fair amount of natural carbon dioxide in the wine to create a lively mouth feel. The resulting wine is moderately sweet and refreshingly low in alcohol – less than – with flavors of pineapple and peach. Our Sweet Riesling brings perfect balance to all fiery fare – especially Thai, Szechwan and Caribbean cuisine… or simply enjoy as an aperitif.
