2012 Selenium Vineyard Noble Wine
At 1,200 feet of elevation, Selenium Vineyard sits on the Golden Bench of the Yakima Valley. This south facing slope has thin soils with wind-blown loess on fractured basalt encouraging the vines to dig deep for nutrients. Planted in 2001, Selenium Vineyard features German Riesling clones 190, 110, 98 & 239. All four clones were lovingly hand-harvested to ensure the best cluster selection for our Noble and Ice Wine Rieslings.
While our Noble & Ice Wines were harvested from the same vineyard block, they could not be more different. These dessert wines each have their own distinctive personality and speak to the versatility and artistry of Riesling winemaking.
