By on October 7, 2016

lone-birch-riesling-nv-bottleBest Buy! One of Washington state’s largest vineyards in the state’s oldest American Viticultural Area continues to produce delicious aromatic whites for the Miller family, and their latest Riesling is a fun one. Tropical aromas mimic Juicy Fruit gum, peach and Mandarin orange with touches of jasmine, spearmint and a whiff of petrol. Inside, its bright entry comes with flavors of peaches and cream, orange zest and a lick of Jolly Rancher Green Apple candy in the finish, a sensation of sweetness and tartness that nicely balances the the residual sugar of 2.5%.
