Who Says No Whites After Labor Day?

There may be a few of you out there who were actually able to taste our 2007 dry Riesling, but for most it is just a myth that Otis Kenyon once made a white wine.  Well, be ready to have your core beliefs rocked – not only did we make another dry Riesling, we also made a Roussanne!!
2011 Dry Riesling - $16
Not a bit of residual sugar is left in this bone dry Riesling.  Instead there are tons of tropical and citrus fruits in the nose and great acidity in the mouth making it a perfect porch pounder for the dog days of summer.  Sit back and relax with a glass.
2011 Roussanne - $20
While this wine is round, soft and slightly herbal it does have a solid backbone of acid making it a great one to pair with your favorite seafood dishes, curry flavors or a fresh apricot tart.  Sip a glass with an appetizer of Camembert & Marcona almonds while the curry simmers – then pour another to enjoy with dinner.
We have been pouring these soft sippers in the tasting rooms for the last month, but now that it has cooled off enough to ship them out of Walla Walla, we want to share them with all of our friends.  Both of these wines will have a place in your fridge long into the fall months with food pairings and bright flavors.
White Wine Release Parties!!

We will be officially releasing both of these white wines in our tasting rooms this weekend!
