Pacific Rim 2007 Dry Riesling Columbia Valley


Full Disclosure: This wine was provided as a free sample from the producer.

The Pacific Rim 2007 Dry Riesling Columbia Valley (12.5%) is a terrific Washington riesling (which benefits from 20% fruit from the Mosel region). And at $10, this a wine to enjoy regularly with a variety of foods, be they spicy, rich or otherwise.

In the glass, this Pacific Rim dry riesling was a clear, yellow gold color, offering hints of petrol giving way to stone fruit and citrus floral notes. This wine had a light, crisp mouthfeel with terrific acidity balancing the slight .8% residual sugar. I really like the mineral aspects of this riesling.

We paired this delicious wine with a spicy Asian chicken soup and stir fried gyoza dinner. What a terrific combination the Pacific Rim Dry Riesling made with this meal. At $10, I am going to buy a half, if not a full, case to have on hand in the months ahead.
