Washington Hills Winery 2016 Riesling, Washington, $11

By on August 2, 2018

Best Buy! Director of winemaking for Precept, Hal Landvoigt, works with historic Olsen Family Vineyards in the Yakima Valley as well as Fox and Hancock on this Riesling that scales as “medium sweet” on the International Riesling Foundation Taste Profile. However, some might approach this as less sugary based on the perception. Clean aromas of lime and spearmint gum come with slate. There’s nice weight to this Riesling, which is reminiscent of a slice of Key Lime pie, a bite of apricot and a drop of clementine juice. Washington Hills wines are available through select Total Wine & More locations.
