Dunham Cellars 2014 Lewis Vineyard Riesling, Columbia Valley, $20

By on July 18, 2016

dunham-cellars-lewis-vineyard-estate-riesling-2014-labelDaniel Wampfler was the Dunham Cellars winemaker until leaving late last year for another Walla Walla producer. This superb Riesling will remain part of his legacy. Elegant aromas of apple, minerality and spice lead to flavors of pear and a hint of lemon. It’s all backed with stunning acidity that balances the residual sugar of 1.4% and leads to a long finish. This earned best white at the 2016 Walla Walla Valley Wine Competition.
