Cedar River Cellars 2015 Mormor Riesling, Yakima Valley, $18

By on March 30, 2017

Oregon State alum Micah Nasarow landed in Seattle suburb of Renton and draws his drinking water from the Cedar River Watershed, but his Riesling continues to come from the Miller family’s expansive Airfield Estates near Prosser. He produces this in an off-dry style as a tribute to his family’s grandmother from Norway, and the nose fans out enticing jasmine blossom notes with rock candy and lime. A bit of spritz adds lift to the midpalate, followed by lemon pith and a late burst of acidity to easily balance the residual sugar of 2%. Look for this wine at All Things Wine, The Wine Alley, Top of the Hill and the winery, where they enjoy it with a wedge of Beecher’s Flagship cheese.
