Product Description

Founded in 2003 by Washington State wine visionary Allen Shoup, the Long Shadows proposition was as simple as it was complex: recruit a cadre of the finest winemakers in the world; give each vintner access to Washington State's best grapes; and outfit a winery to accommodate a diverse group of winemakers' exacting cellar specifications. Poet's Leap Riesling is part of the Long Shadows family of wines and until last year, was crafted by winemaker Armin Diel, one of the most highly acclaimed German Riesling producers and proprietor of the renowned Schlossgut Diel. In the fall of 2016, Gilles Nicault assumed total winemaking responsibility for Poet's Leap after Armin found it increasingly challenging to make the numerous trips overseas that the project required.

The 2016 vintage of Poet's Leap is an off-dry Riesling with expressive, spicy aromatics and generous, lively flavors. Fresh melon, honey, ripe apricot and a hint of citrus jump on the palate leaving a vibrant, racy impression and a long, clean finish.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Riesling
Appellation: Columbia Valley AVA
Residual Sugar: 11 g/L (off-dry)
