2018 Cloud 9 Riesling
Cool evenings here in Washington preserve the crisp acids essential to quality Riesling. Palouse sources this grape from forty year old vines in the White Bluffs Vineyard, which lies below the level of Missoula flooding with soils of loess—wind blown deposits of sand and silt—overlying gravel basalt bedrock. Riesling is an extremely popular wine in the Pacific Northwest because of how well it pairs with an array of fresh seafood, including Dungeness Crab and oysters. Well balanced with a crisp apple finish, this wine is light and ethereal on the tongue.
