THE WINE
Eastern Washington’s low annual rainfall and cool nights during the growing season make it the perfect area for producing consistently great late harvest wines. The Hogue Cellars has developed a style of Late Harvest Riesling that is crisp yet moderately sweet. The 2014 vintage opens with aromas of ripe apricot and peach preserves, as well as hints of green tea, orange zest, and orange blossom. Classic
Riesling flavors of apricot nectar, violet, tangerine, honeysuckle, and orange blossom are well balanced by a refreshing acidity. Pair with an appetizer plate of blue cheese, chevre, and smoked gouda, or serve for dessert with poached pears, baked apples, or almonds and hazelnuts.

THE VINTAGE AND VINEYARDS
2014 was another very warm growing season in Eastern Washington, but the vines responded well, putting on sugar early. Botrytis (“the noble rot”) developed in many of the vineyards with deeper soils. This infused the wines with textured richness, nut and dried apricot flavors, and very high sugars–nice Late Harvest characters. The majority of the fruit for the 2014 Late Harvest Riesling was grown in Yakima Valley (98%), on gently sloping vineyards where low vigor and well-drained soils produce smaller berries with concentrated flavors. The remaining fruit was sourced from premier vineyards in Horse Heaven Hills (2%).

THE WINEMAKING
This is a wine that is at its best when there is minimal intervention after harvest. In order to preserve its intense fruit qualities and aromatics, the juice was fermented entirely in stainless steel at temperatures between 48°–57°F, and bottled within a few months of harvest.

This late harvest Riesling is delicious! What I've been looking for all my life! Never a wine (or any other alcoholic beverage) drinker, I have never enjoyed the taste of wine, so knew I was looking for something on the sweet side, not dry, and not fizzy, and this is the one! Just sweet enough and very flavorful. This is the only wine I drink. (In a pinch I will also drink your regular Riesling). I have made the mistake of trying a few other brands of Riesling and have regretted it every time. Thank you, Hogue! Glad to be support this fine product made in the USA.

This Late Harvest is one of my go to wines. I like a semi sweet wine that is not dry but yet not too sweet. This one fits the bill. From Ohio, would love to have more of your wines available.
