Pine & Post Winery NV Riesling, Washington, $8

By on February 27, 2013

Pine & Post RieslingBest Buy! It’s not unusual for this bargain brand to release non-vintage wines, and this Riesling doesn’t carry much residual sugar (2%). The nose hints at Asian pear, baked apple dumpling, bubble gum and candy corn. On the attack, there’s more candy corn up front, a sign of the Chenin Blanc (15%), then the acidity really picks up. Flavors of lemon/lime, apricot pit and minerality are capped with a drop of petrol in the finish.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 1,900 cases

Alcohol: 13%

      Greetings, Deanna.

      You won’t find Pine & Post on shelves, but the brand’s owner, Seattle-based Precept Wine, suggested trying Washington Hills Riesling. It has a similar profile to Pine & Post, and it can be found at any major grocery chain. (The Washington Hills Late Harvest Riesling carries a fair bit more sweetness than the “regular” Riesling.

      Our panel tasted the Washington Hills 2016 Riesling and found it equally delicious.

      As our review notes, that wine can be found at Total Wine & More.

      I hope this helps.
