2011 Riesling, Columbia Valley 750ml
Because of the popularity and demand of their Dry Riesling and Sweet Riesling, Pacific Rim wines thought it made perfect sense to craft a Riesling in a taste profile that was directly between their other popular Rieslings. This slightly sweet flavor profile represents over one million cases sold in the market. As wine lovers crave alternatives to heavy and oaky white wines, Riesling is experiencing a true revival (like a phoenix rising from the ashes — the inspiration for our label artwork). Portraying bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apple, the wine exemplifies the harmony of Riesling. The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).

2010 Riesling Wallula Vineyard (Biodynamic) Columbia Valley's Horse Heaven Hills 750ml
The wine was aged on lees for a few months and displays wonderful yeastiness, jasmine on the palate and great minerality with a dry, bright finish. Adhering to the strictest Demeter Certified Biodynamic® farming and viticulture standards, this wine is a pure expression of Riesling. People often ask, "What do you do at the winery to make the winemaking Biodynamic?" Pacific Rim Wines' answer: "we do nothing, absolutely nothing." If they would list the ingredients on the label, they would read: Biodynamic grapes, Sulfites below 100ppm, yeast hulls and bentonite (used for protein stability). The resulting wine is a piece of art and the truest form of Riesling.

Our Solstice Riesling grapes are handpicked and fermented with its native yeasts and aged sur lie for 6 to 12 months. The resulting wine is a ripe, dry Riesling with a generous alcohol content and an insanely low pH. The Solstice has concentration and all the elegance of a great Austrian Riesling. The wine is truly cellar worthy and will age for a very long time (10 plus years). We recommend pairing our Solstice Riesling with risotto, fish in creamy sauce or pork chops.
