Tasting notes: Charles & Charles Riesling
Generous aromas of lime leaf, white peach, flower and slate lead to off-dry green apple flavours backed by zippy acidity. The lovely sense of balance keeps you coming back for more. A lovely Riesling.
Food Pairing: Charles & Charles Riesling
Great with pasta and bacon dishes, grilled fish and scallops.
All of our fruit is grown above 1,100 feet, which may not sound that high, but in Washington only 10% of the total vineyards planted are above that level.
They have an amazing group of growers with exceptionally tended to vineyards that spread all across the Columbia Valley, from the sandy basins to the higher elevation slopes with ancient soils.
Global Riesling Masters 18 (Gold)
Charles and Charles is a collaboration founded in 2008 between Food & Wine Magazine 2014 Winemaker of the year, Charles Smith (Charles Smith Wines) and Charles Bieler (Three Thieves, Gotham Project). The Charles & Charles Chardonnay is a firm, juicy, refreshing Chardonnay that picks up great power and depth in your glass. There are aromas of Pippin apples, jasmine and some citrus along with warm caramel. These flavours intensify on the palate where they are joined by light tropical notes and a streak of minerality on its mid-weight frame. Power meets finesse here.

The qualities we look for to make exciting Rosé are quite distinct and thus there is not one vineyard whose fruit overlaps with our red wine programs.
