2022 2022 Poet's Leap
- Winemaker Gilles Nicault
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Riesling
Inspired by the great wines of Germany and winemaker Armin Diel, one of the most highly acclaimed Riesling producers.
The 2022 Poet’s Leap Riesling is a fresh and vibrant wine with fragrant jasmine and citrus peel aromatics combined with flavors of white peach, kumquat and ripe stone fruits.The wine’s racy natural acidity, and a pleasant streak of minerality, provide a balanced mouthfeel and long, clean finish.
The 2022 Poet’s Leap is sourced from old vine Riesling grown at Sagemoor’s Gamache Vineyard. Planted in the mid-1980s, this is a cooler site than other parts of the Columbia Valley. Riesling grown here is notable for its bright acidity and appealing citrus character. A small amount ofBacchus Vineyard’s German clone Riesling and Yakima Valley’s DuBrul Vineyard grapes round out the blend, adding minerality, stone fruit, and heightened aromatics to the finished wine.
