“The location of Underwood Mountain Vineyard, on a steep volcanic hillside high above the Columbia River Gorge, is the perfect climate
for providing the lengthy ripening season needed for the Riesling grape’s intense flavors to develop, while not losing the acidity that’s core to the grape. Flavors of tangerine, lime, ginger root, and wet stone combine to make a delicious off-dry Riesling that finishes dry.”
