Tasting notes

This 2010 vintage exudes fragrant aromas of mandarin peel and white peach with underlying mineral notes and vibrant acidity on the palate. It reflects the Eroica style that has been developed over more than a decade. Ideal as an aperitif with cheeses or spicy dishes. Perfect pairing with asian dishes, Indian curries, crab, scallops.

Vinification and aging

To protect flavor intensity, grapes were harvested at night when the vineyard temperatures were coldest. Berries went direct to press, avoiding the possible loss of freshness caused by a crusher/destemmer. A cool fermentation created a seamless integration of fruit, sugar and acid. Fruit-driven yeasts with slower fermentation rates were used to slow down fermentation and heighten fruit flavors.

Terroir

Zillah Ranch in the Yakima Valley provided more than half of the Riesling for the blend contributing amazing acidity and minerality. Evergreen Vineyard, near the town of George, Washington, also contributed to the blend, imparting crisp lime and delicate peach flavors to the wine.
