About This Wine:
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. Eroica is a blended statement of the finest Riesling vineyards in the state.

~ To protect flavor intensity, grapes were harvested at night when the vineyard temperatures were coldest.
~ Berries went direct to press, avoiding the possible loss of freshness caused by a crusher/de-stemmer.
~ A cool fermentation created a seamless integration of fruit, sugar and acid. Fruit-driven yeasts with slower fermentation rates were used to slow down fermentation and heighten fruit flavors.
~ Ernst Loosen and Bob Bertheau considered dozens of small lots, each reflecting a slight difference in character depending on where the grapes were grown, resulting in the complexity of the final blend.

Total acidity: 0.73 g/100ml
pH: 2.93
Alcohol: 12%

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Lively and precise, with floral peach and petrol aromas and succulent, crisp flavors of lime and grapefruit. Drink now. 15,000 cases made." – TF (Apr 30, 2017)

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This wine starts out a bit reduced, along with subdued aromas of lime leaf, wet slate, white peach and citrus peel. It drinks a hair off dry, with zippy citric acidity that stretches out the finish." - Sean P. Sullivan (5/1/2017)
