About This Wine

Stuart Henry worked for some of California’s largest wineries.

That taught him how to produce clean wines of high quality. It was about making wines that were consistent from vintage to vintage. Today, Stuart is a sought-after vintner who lends his skills to a number of labels, including Rockrose.

“Working with Riesling and Rockrose allow me to be creative,” Henry says. “Yet I always need to stay true to the natural flavors of the grapes. Thankfully, the quality of grapes for this wine is so high and the vineyards are so special that it makes it easy to produce something that’s enjoyable, yet respectful of a particular place.”

That place is Washington’s Columbia Valley. “To fully enjoy a Riesling as good as this, the drinker needs to experience the grape’s full range of aromas,” Henry says. “It’s particularly rewarding for me, as a winemaker, when a wine really stimulates all of your senses.”

About Riesling

One of the world's great grapes. Distinctive floral bouquet with balancing acidity. Grows best in cool areas where grapes ripen slowly. Subject to " noble rot", making wines of great richness and sweetness. Low alcohol.

    The nose was of lemongrass and peach. As an aperitif, the wine initially was very sweet on the palate, but in a good way. The sweetness didn't linger too long however and the acidity came through nicely within a few seconds. It is medium bodied with excellent pear and peach flavor. There was a long enough finish to make this one a slow sipper. Paired with grilled chicken and vegetables the sweetness was toned down by the acid in the marinade, causing the acid of the wine to come to more of the forefront and bring a much more balanced overall effect to the wine much more balanced.

    Good Crisp Riesling. I LOVE Rieslings. Almost as good as the old Columbia Crest from years back, same region.

    I don't typically like Riesling wine, but this was good, not too sweet and not too dry
