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.”
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.
