Dry and dramatic helps start the discussion of this Riesling off one of Washington state’s top sites for white wines. Evergreen Vineyard was planted in 1998 at 1,300 feet elevation, which begins to explain its aromas of Granny Smith apple, gooseberry, minerality, fresh-cut celery and green bell pepper. Brilliant acidity pushes from start to finish, carrying along flavors of green apple, lime juice, slate and celery seed. While it’s not labeled as such, it’s seriously dry (0.4% residual sugar) and should sidle up to curries and Mediterranean fare.
