Milbrandt Vineyards 2016 Evergreen Vineyard Traditions Riesling, Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley, $13

By on January 9, 2018

The Ancient Lakes in general and Evergreen Vineyard in particular have proven to be a great spot for growing world-class Riesling. So a gold for this wine is no surprise. Aromas of white flower petals, juicy peaches and crisp apple lead to flavors of Asian pear, Golden Delicious apple and hints of minerality. It walked off with a gold medal and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards.
