washington-hills-riesling-2014-bottleBest Buy! Germany’s noble white grape excels in the Evergreen State, and the source for this latest bottling of Riesling comes from the Yakima Valley in this off-dry presentation that offers a prelude of flint, apple blossom, fresh thyme, mint, honeysuckle and sweet lime. Inside, there’s a fascinating dry entry that quickly leads to rich and luscious flavors of ripe pear. The finish turns it into a crowd-pleaser as Jolly Rancher Green Apple candy speaks to the residual sugar (2%) before a delicious squirt of Key Lime juice anchors the balance.
