Sourced exclusively from from Evergreen Vineyard in Washington’s Ancient Lakes AVA, Extended Lees Contact (XLC) is a modern interpretation of classic, Old World, dry-style Riesling. This wine is crafted in an upright oak cask and aged for 22 months on the full lees (spent yeast). In keeping with Germany’s Grosses Gewächs “GG” designation, this is a dry wine from distinctive vineyards. Just 400 cases are made annually.
Incredible aromas of lime and white grapefruit with a distinctive toasty complexity coming from the extended lees contact. Beautifully dry yet with a deep rounded, supple texture that makes it so drinkable. An outstanding Riesling that ranks amongst the world’s best.
