Taste/Description: When it comes to Rieslings the one region in the United States who does Riesling well is Columbia Valley, Washington state. This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks. On the nose you are greeted with peach and citrus notes; on the palate you get peach, lime and just a hint of mineral. The acidity in this wine is very refreshing. A very nice wine sipping experience.
