Latah Creek Sweet Riesling 2020

BACKGROUND
During Latah Creek’s thirty-four years of producing Riesling, Mike has had the opportunity to use grapes from nearly every growing region within Washington State: Pasco/Tri-Cities, Sunnyside, Yakima Valley, Wahluke Slope, Rattlesnake
Hills, and most recently the Ancient Lakes AVA. Of all these areas, father/daughter winemaking team, Mike and Natalie, believe the Ancient Lakes AVA consistently produces the best Riesling, thus a conversion was made to this area for all Riesling bottling’s since their first harvest there in the early 1990’s.
Latah Creek’s first release of a Sweet Riesling was back in 2013 with grapes from the 2012 vintage. This limited production wine sold out very quickly and has been one of our most requested wines ever since. The next release was in 2018, using grapes from the 2017 harvest. The thing about making a Riesling with a higher residual sugar, is that you must have a high enough acid level in the grapes to make sure the sweet wine will still be fresh and crisp on the tongue, rather than heavy and syrup-like. For this reason, Mike and Natalie only make Sweet Riesling when the perfect conditions are met to make the perfect grapes, which is why these releases are not each and every year.
