Riesling a Great Northwest Wine

By on August 17, 2014

Sawtooth Winery 2012 Estate Riesling, Snake River Valley, $12

Sawtooth Winery Riesling backlabelBest Buy! Idaho’s largest production of Riesling outside of sister property Ste. Chapelle takes on a more Alsace approach, starting with aromas of petrol, baked apple, kiwi and lemon. The residual sugar of 2.4% takes this down a path akin to late harvest at the start, but there’s plenty of acidity to balance as the flavor profile features peach, apricot and lingering lime.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 4,200 cases

Alcohol: 13%
