Côte Bonneville 2016 DuBrul Vineyard Estate Riesling, Yakima Valley, $22

By on June 12, 2017

The Shiels family continues to burnish its reputation for producing delicious Riesling in a Spätlese style via DuBrul Vineyard, established in 1992 overlooking the Yakima Valley from the Rattlesnake Hills. Flinty minerality, nectarine and pear aromas lead into lip-smacking flavors of peach nectar and clementine acidity to adroitly balance the residual sugar of 3.5%. Minimal alcohol also lends it easy drinking alongside suggested pairings that include an Asian-inspired chicken wrap or a lemon bar. Second-generation vintner Kerry Shiels – a longtime supporter of the Riesling Rendezvous – turned this into a gold medal at the 2017 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
