Seven Hills Winery Riesling 2008


SKU 06723


Sourced from a cooler, northern vineyard to foster a fresh brightness and two very old Yakima Valley sites for depth and richness. A graceful, balanced Riesling with low alcohol and brilliant straw color. Shows abundant lime, green apple and mineral notes, softened by ripe lychee. Follows our traditional style of light sweetness with a crisp, clean finish. While Riesling ages very well, this is a wine meant to be enjoyed within two years of release. This 100 % Stelvin closure lot keeps the wine in optimal sensory condition throughout its life in the bottle. A very versatile style suitable for a variety of occasions.

Wine EnthusiastThe residual sugar is 2.5%, keeping the alcohol under 11%, and with the generous natural acids of the vintage it balances out just fine. Truly Germanic in style, it carries suggestions of sweet honey and tea, coupled with the snap of natural acids and a mix of pretty fruits.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Riesling delivers an alluring bouquet of spring flowers, mineral, citrus, and tropical notes. Made in a just off-dry Kabinett style, it has lively acidity, good concentration, and a crisp, refreshing finish. Drink it over the next 3 years.
