Hi Guys,,, this is Thomas Bailey from Pacific Rim Winemakers... Just wanted to let everyone know that this particular vintage is nearly sold out, and that our Pacific Rim Riesling is not easily available to find in mainstream retail stores(like our Sweet Riesling)....which has tremendous account base.
That is why you will find our Riesling, from time-to-time at large discount liqour stores or even COSTCO... as these stores cherry pick highly rated wines, charge little margin, and move LARGE volume.
As a small producer of world class Riesling, you sometimes have to feed the big fish in order to recoop your investment(glass, labels, grapes,,,,etc.), so you can turn around and make another fantastic vintage of wine!! We certainly have a goal to make our wines available to as many people as possible.
That is why we are applying to direct ship to more & more states meanwhile slowly building our account base. Wine.woot! is an awesome partner in helping these great wines from Pacific Rim more available to the country!
In addition to claiming the #1 Top 100 wine of the year from Enthuiast, the 2009 vintage was named the #2 wine of 2010 from Wine Enthus. & given 92pts... Back to back record off accolades.
It is a very refreshing wine, lightly sweet on the front end, a lush mid-palate feel - finishing crip and finsihes off dry. The lower Ph gives an overall impression of subtle to little sweetnes, balanced with a lively acidity which pairs nicely with all manners of cuisine or enjoyed on its own on the patio. I hope you enjoy!
