W.B. Bridgman 2016 Riesling, Columbia Valley, $13
Best Buy! Yakima Valley attorney/winemaker W.B. Bridgman is credited with the first plantings of Chardonnay in Washington a century ago. In 1988, merchant Harry Alhadeff and winemaker Brian Carter combined to launch a brand dedicated to Bridgman in Sunnyside, and Seattle-based Precept revived the brand and has since established a relationship with Total Wine & More to further it. This 2016 Riesling is yet another example of how well suited this Germany white grape is to Washington state. Aromas of fruit cocktail, rosewater and lychee make their way to the palate in a rather elegant fashion. A blend of lime and orange acidity provides perfect balance to the 2.4% residual sugar that comes across more dry than sweet.
