Wine Review: This Riesling is consistently a terrific wine. This year’s vintage is no exception. This pale yellow colored wine opens with a fresh scented lemon lime like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and has wonderfully balanced fruit and acidity. The flavor profile is peach like with a hint of minerality throughout. The finish is semi dry and very refreshing. This wine would pair perfectly with broiled scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "This Eroica shows the crisp acidity of the 2007 vintage, which was the best acidity holding year I have seen in my five years being involved in Eroica. The wine delivers mandarin orange and sweet lime aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. The cooler September, along with selecting fruit from higher elevation and cooler sites, contributed to the mouth-watering acidity balanced by beautiful Washington Riesling fruit. I have found this wine to be an amazing pairing with sweet, flavorful Dungeness crab." - Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker
