Aromatics and flavors of juicy tropical and stone fruit with hints of floral lead to a lively off-dry finish.

The Riesling grapes are gently whole cluster pressed, which allows for free run and soft pressed juice to be separated within a 4-hour time frame. The juice is chilled and decanted before inoculation with a Riesling specific yeast strain. Fermentation is arrested to allow for some residual sweetness to balance the crisp acidity.

Production Notes

The growing season of 2021 was a hot one here in Washington. With spiking temperatures throughout most of the spring and summer months, we watered abundantly to keep the vines content throughout the season. We harvested the Riesling at it's optimal ripeness.

Vineyard Notes

Bacchus Vineyard was first planted in 1972, aptly named after the Roman god of wine. With nearly half a century under their belts, the team at Bacchus, led by Lacey Lybeck, has been instrumental in the growth of the Washington State wine industry. Located on the east side of the Columbia River, 15 miles north of the Tri-Cities, Bacchus has a commanding view to the west overlooking the mighty Columbia River and the Rattlesnake Mountains. The sloping land’s elevation ranges from 550-900 feet, and soft rolling knolls keep Bacchus warm (not hot, not cool) with excellent air drainage. No wonder this unique place produces a cadre of beautiful fruit.
