By on September 16, 2014

bitner-vineyards-high-desert-white-nv-labelBest Buy! For years, Ron Bitner has been entrusting his grapes and his wines to nearby winemaker Greg Koenig, and this off-dry estate blend of Riesling (50%), Chardonnay (25%) and Viognier is highly pleasing. Aromas of Mandarin orange, apricot, kiwi, peach taffy and maraschino cherry lead to flavors bursting with white peach, pineapple and orange. There’s more than enough acidity trailing in the finish to balance the residual sugar (2.5%).

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 205 cases

Alcohol: 12.5%
