Hogue Cellars Late harvest White Riesling

If you are a fan of sweet wines as I am, try this one from Hogue Cellars. It is one of my favorite white wines next to Moscato. The description below is pulled from their website.

Eastern Washington’s low annual rainfall and cool nights during the growing season make it the perfect area for producing consistently great late harvest wines. The Hogue Cellars has developed a style of late harvest Riesling that is crisp yet moderately sweet. The wine was produced from select Riesling vineyards where the fruit can ripen to the required 24°+ Brix. At that level of ripeness, the wine develops its trademark tangerine/apricot flavor. Zesty aromas of orange, lemon-lime, and peach are followed by flavors of tangerine, apricot, and a trace of mineral. Serve alongside poached pears, cheesecake, or a cheese platter of Stilton, smoked Gouda, and fresh goat cheese. It’s also excellent as an aperitif.

YUM(that’s my word)!

  1. If you want another great one, try a Gewurtztraminer if you haven’t already. I’ve tried Chateau Ste. Michelle, and it is now my favorite – this is saying something considering all my other faves are dry reds.
