Pacific Rim Solstice Vineyard Riesling bottleThe Willard family established their Riesling in 1980, making them some of the oldest planted in the Roza near Prosser, Wash.

It remains bright and crisp from start to finish, featuring flavors of Granny Smith apple and lime, backed by dusty minerality.
