Eroica Riesling offers sweet lime and mandarin orange aromas with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. To achieve our Eroica style we strive for bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced mineralilty. Food Pairings: Asian dishes, Indian curries, crab, scallops.

Wine & SpiritsIn its camellia and fruit blossom scents and its mildly tropical expression of pear and apple flavors, the 2016 Eroica may not be the most complex riesling you’ll taste this year, but in its succulence and juicy purity, it may be the most satisfying, channeling a dose of lambent Eastern Washington sunshine.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Eroica Riesling is another winner, and year in, year out, it’s one of the finest expressions of this variety in the United States. It offers a clean, crisp bouquet of white peach, lychee, and candied orange This gives way to a medium-bodied, supple, beautifully pure, seamless Riesling that has remarkable purity and balance. It's terrific today, yet I suspect will age gracefully

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Riesling Eroica is a great success, offering up a fragrant but elegantly understated bouquet of peaches, white cherries, lychee and citrus blossom. On the palate, it's light to medium-bodied, off-dry and stony, with mouthwatering acids and refreshing spritz. For the price, it's hard to beat.
