Tasting Notes

Our 2022 Riesling displays aromas of white peach and mandarin with hints of golden raisin and floral notes, creating a beautiful bouquet in the glass. Light-bodied and refreshing, the palate reveals flavors of kiwi, passionfruit, lime, and candied lemon. Bright acidity and a hint of natural residual sugar foster a vibrant, racy impression, culminating in a clean, crisp finish.

Vintage Notes

The 2022 vintage in the Yakima Valley was a bit of a roller coaster. A mild winter extended into spring with early frost periods and winter-like conditions in April. The cool spring delayed bud break by a few weeks and caused delayed growth in the vineyard as we moved into summer. Each vineyard block was meticulously managed to ensure a ripe crop by harvest. We lowered clusters per vine and allowed for more sunlight exposure. By mid-July, temperatures finally started warming up and led to record growth in a short amount of time. Fortunately, warm summer temperatures extended into fall, helping to lengthen the growing season and allowing the grapes to continue to ripen. Harvest ended up being delayed approximately three weeks from a typical year. We gratefully did not experience any fall frost events, so the grapes had extended hang time on the vines to achieve optimal ripeness and excellent flavor development. Overall, the 2022 vintage displays ripe flavors, bountiful fruit aromas, and balanced acidity. The wines can be enjoyed in their youth, or they can cellar for many years to come.

Winemaking Notes

Our 2022 Riesling was crafted in the Kabinett style, which means that the grapes were harvested early in their sugar development, allowing us to achieve the flavors, ripeness, and brisk acidity that we aim for. The objective was to create a wine with lower alcohol content, crisp acidity, and balanced natural residual sugar. The grapes were harvested in early September at 20.5 brix. They were not de-stemmed but sent directly to the press as whole clusters. After a gentle pressing, the juice was settled for 72 hours before being separated from its lees to begin fermentation. We used a unique yeast strain isolated from German Riesling grapes to initiate fermentation, aiming to maintain fresh fruit characteristics. Fermentation took place at a cool temperature of 56 degrees for almost four weeks to yield fresh tropical and citrus notes. Fermentation was seized early to preserve some of the wine’s natural residual sugar and achieve balance on the palate. Post fermentation, the wine’s natural lees were stirred twice a month for two months to enhance the body and roundness of the wine. The wine was then settled and stabilized before bottling.
