NxNW Riesling The Benches Vineyard 2012

89 Points for this half-bottle offering from NxNW because it’s a good value. Made in an ice wine style, this late harvest Riesling was sur lie aged in stainless steel for three months prior to bottling, and it’s a wine of pure varietal expression. Tons of dried apricot throughout, with a dollop of bananas foster and dried mango on the top. It’s quite viscous, but there is a piercing citrus note, like candied orange peel, or lemon drop giving lift to all of the weight packed into this charming Columbia Valley dessert wine. 38° Brix at pressing, 24.4% RS 12.5% ABV | Sample
