Eroica 2008 Riesling - 92-93pts
Availability: Private wine shops
Date Tasted: February 10th, 2011
Tasting Notes: Produced in the Columbia Valley, the Eroica Riesling is a joint venture between Washington State's Chateau Ste Michelle and Germany's Dr. Loosen. The collaboration has produced a spectacular Riesling that manages the balance of sweetness to tartness and fruitiness to minerality with near-perfect precision.
Great concentration and focus on both the intense nose and off-dry palate with abundant citrus, herbs and stonefruit characters. The Eroica, Italian for "heroic", is an epic wine that all Riesling lovers must try. Both easy-drinking and complex, the wine is drinking beautifully its youth but will also reward careful cellaring with further development. Drink 2011-2018.
