Wine Press Northwest gives a glowing review of our Riesling

Jan 29th, 2017:

The word is out on our Riesling, and Wine Press Northwest has caught wind. Here’s what they had to say:

Moraine Estate Winery 2015 Riesling, Okanagan Valley •  $24There were plenty of stellar Rieslings in the 17th annual Platinum Judging, and as always, B.C.’s Okanagan region was well represented. Much to the benefit of Northwest wine lovers, winemaker Jacq Kemp (short for Jacqueline) put aside her lab coat as a nutritional scientist and diverted to a wine education in New Zealand. She produced a balanced Riesling with floral, spice and face powder aromatics, pineapple and orange flavors and a long, crisp finish despite 3.5% residual sugar. (300 cases, 11.8% alc.) Awards: Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition (gold), Finger Lakes Wine Competition (gold).”

Try it for yourself and see what all the buzz is about!
