Wine Press Northwest: Styring Whimsy Riesling Outstanding!

Seven bottles of Pacific Northwest Riesling Wines

Styring 2014 Whimsy Riesling was among those rated Outstanding by a Wine Press Northwest blind-tasting panel.

Wine Press Northwest Panel Blind-Tastes 100+ Rieslings
Styring 2014 Whimsy Estate Riesling Rated “Outstanding!”


This spring, Wine Press Northwest blind-tasted more than 100 examples of Riesling from Washington, Oregon and Idaho. We’re pleased that our 2014 Whimsy was among those rated “Outstanding!” by the panel. Here’s what they said:

Styring Vineyards 2014 Whimsy Estate Riesling, Ribbon Ridge •  $20
Ribbon Ridge is the Pacific Northwest’s smallest AVA, and it is renowned for its world-class Pinot Noir. In this winery’s vineyard, however, a bit of Riesling is planted, and the resulting wine is glorious. Exotic aromas of tropical fruit, apple and clove lead to a lovely entry of crisp apple, dried mango and mint. It is a complex wine with notes of orange blossom and underlying minerality. The crisp acidity snaps everything into focus throughout. (200 cases; 12.6% alc.)
