Mercer Canyons Riesling 2012
Fresh fruits such as white peach and pears greet you on the nose, coupled with aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom. The lush juiciness of the fruit on the palate is nicely balanced by bright acidity, framing the wine and providing structure. A slight effervescence lifts the fruit and adds to the roundness in the mouth. Notes of stone fruits and honey linger on the finish.
100% Riesling. Mercer Canyons Wine epitomizes the pioneering history of the Mercer family who first ventured west to the Columbia Valley in 1886. Back at the turn of the century, after a long, hard week herding sheep across the hills and valleys of Eastern Washington, it was time for some much needed R&R and a good meal of fresh fish. The men would make camp beside a river to go fishing, where they caught dinner and a few winks. Today, their vineyards produce world-class Riesling to pair with your latest catch.
