Pacific Rim Dry Riesling

Product description

Pacific Rim is obsessed with Riesling! They are committed to sustainability to keep the state of Washington beautiful. Their vineyards are in the Yakima and Horse Heaven Hills AVAs within the larger Columbia Valley AVA of Washington State. Their soils have been shaped by the incredible Missoula Floods and are primarily wind-blown loess on basalt bedrock; this is a poor, minerally-driven terroir perfect to produce a Riesling with complexity and concentration.

Pacific Rim believes in low input winemaking and use sustainable techniques in the vineyard and at the winery. They ban the use of excessive watering, use the grape’s native yeasts for fermentation, and use low sulfites.

No oak and no malolactic on this wine — it's as pure and unmanipulated as it gets. For the Dry Riesling, Pacific Rim blends 20% of German Riesling wine — selected by Johannes Selbach in the Mosel region — to 80% of our Columbia Valley Riesling. The German Riesling lends great depth and acidity, as well as low alcohol.

The wine is crisp, dry and lush with flavors of citrus, jasmine and minerals. This Dry Riesling is endlessly versatile and harmoniously complements the world's most vibrant and flavorful cuisine — from Asian to European to a wide variety of seafood, cheeses and cold meats.
