The Magician – Sleight of Hand Riesling
The 2019 Magician Riesling is from Evergreen Vineyard, located on the cliffs high above the Columbia River in the Ancient Lakes of the Columbia Valley AVA in Washington State. 2019 was a cool vintage, perfect for Riesling, allowing for extra hang time for flavor development, while maintaining the beautiful acidity that is the framework for this wine. Although this wine has just over 10 grams/L of residual sugar, it drinks and finishes much drier. It shows bright, crisp, and juicy notes of green apple and pear, with mouth-watering minerality, and refreshing citrus notes. The subtle sweetness is perfectly balanced by the racy acids, and if ever there were a perfect wine for spicy foods, this is the one! Enjoy with your friends and family.
