Sleight of Hand Cellars ‘The Magician’ Riesling 2022, Ancient Lakes, Columbia Valley, Washington

The 2022 Magician Riesling comes from Evergreen Vineyard in the Ancient Lakes AVA, located high above the Columbia River near George, WA. 2022 saw a long growing season, with a cool, wet spring leading up to a warm summer, followed by a picture-perfect harvest in October. The grapes in 2022 were beautifully balanced, with incredible vibrancy and tension paired with gorgeous notes of peach blossom, green apples, honeysuckle, and a hint of petrol notes. This wine is virtually bone dry, with just 2 g/L of residual sugar.The racy acidity makes this the perfect pairing with spicy foods like Thai, Indian, and even BBQ!
