Wine & Spirits Review
The "Gold" on this bottling is meant to connote an Auslese style of wine. The 2013 uses the extra ripeness to achieve an extra level of intensity rather than sweetness, with scents of saffron and orange peel, flavors of peach and ripe pear bolstered by botrytis. It's fleshy and rich, with a tension between the wine's mouthfilling richness and the clean cut of its finish. A match for Ottolenghi's saffron cauliflower with golden raisins.
Wine Tasting Notes
Our Eroica Gold Riesling offers the best of both worlds, the bright natural acidity of our original Eroica with concentrated, ripe fruit flavors and a touch of sweetness. German winemakers have been making Riesling with Botrytis influence for generations. Eroica Gold combines the trademark Washington acidity with German botrytis influence. The wine offers lush orange marmalade flavors with a crisp finish."
