2018 Cordivae Wine Co., Riesling Columbia Valley
Corvidae is the Latin name for the family of birds that includes the Crow, Raven, Jay and Magpie. These “dark” birds are everywhere in the vine-yards of Eastern Washington. Their reputation as crafty, adaptable, and somewhat dubious characters is a fitting icon for our suspiciously terrific value wines from this region. The geology and climate here yields rich, complex fruit, with luscious fragrance and bright acidity. The wine is fermented entirely in stainless steel. Mineral laden soils contribute to this wine’s flinty character and lively flavors.
Bright, refreshing and vibrant, this off-dry Riesling exudes mouthwatering acidity with key lime pie, honeysuckle and apricot notes.
