This medium-dry expression of clone 12 Riesling comes from the Corfu Crossing block of Lawrence Vineyards in Royal City, Wash., and winemaker/owner Rob Entrekin also got a guiding hand from Woodinville vintner Matthew Loso. Fascinating aromas of Red Delicious apple, starfruit, Cracker Jack and allysum lead to a rich and tasty tropical entry of pineapple with peach. The residual sugar of 1.7% is balanced by a bit of spritzy acidity, which makes for a pretty nice example. Finn Hill increased production by about 50 percent from the previous vintage, and these wines are available at the winery, on the website and via Amazon.
