RIESLING - COLUMBIA VALLEY, WASHINGTON

SKY CANVAS

Sky-Canvas.jpg

Washington State is blessed with amazing viticultural diversity – from snowy mountain peaks to broad, sun-kissed plains; from foggy coastal inlets to deep river valleys. Our Columbia Valley Riesling is grown in one of the state’s most exceptional Terroirs, where Riesling expresses its origins with a luscious, complex, vivacious white that’s fruit forward and deceptively full, with electric minerality on the finish.

WINE PROFILE

Sky Canvas Riesling is a uniquely Pacific Northwest expression of this legendary grape - with hints of Granny smith apple, grapefruit, honeycomb, and minerals. There is something, hard to explain, that characterizes Riesling grown in Washington State - an exhilarating citrusy acidity and stony zip found nowhere else. Sky Canvas features a rounded mouthfeel and an off-dry finish that lends depth and breadth to this expressive Riesling.

 

FOOD COMBINATIONS

Crudo (raw fish), Vietnamese chicken salad, Salmon Tataki, Poke bowl, spicy Thai noodles, prosciutto and melon skewers.

 

RIESLING CREDIBLE

We are infatuated with Riesling, and are always on the lookout for the rare combination of grape, terroir, and experience. Sky Canvas perfectly embodies this rare combination.  Sky Canvas is a multi-generational effort from a family that has worked with their vineyard holdings in the Columbia Valley for years – an extreme viticultural region with a challenging climate and barren, rocky soils.

However, the steep slopes of the Columbia River valley are one of the only locations in the world where Riesling reaches such rarified heights. The unique demands of grapegrowing here on the frontier of what is possible is only attained by generations of accumulated knowledge and experience, passed down in the blood of the farmers who grow Sky Canvas Riesling.
