Pacific Rim Riesling Vin de Glacière Columbia Valley 2016
To make our 2018 Vin de Glacière Riesling, the grapes are pressed frozen. It contains an abundance of pear, jasmine, and honey with well-preserved natural acidity. A truly succulent dessert wine.
100% Columbia Valley, WA. Purest winemaking possible – sustainably produced, all native yeasts, no oak, no malolactic. A perfect exploration of sweetness – covering the classic residual sugar spectrum of Riesling.
We pick the organic Vin de Glacière Riesling grapes at around 22.5% sugar in order to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes. The grapes are then frozen and pressed frozen, resulting in a concentrated press juice (about 36% sugar) and a low yield (about half our yield compare to non-frozen grapes). The concentrated juice is fermented until we reach 16.0% Residual Sugar. This wine will age very well.
Decadently sweet honey flavors yet pure and fresh.
Ideal with fruit tarts, cheesecake, and blue cheeses.
