Wine Review

Launched in 1999, Eroica is a labor of love for two of the world’s great Riesling producers. One from the Old World, Dr. Loosen estate of Germany, and the other from the New World, Chateau Ste. Michelle of Washington state. An intermingling of Old and New World philosophies and techniques enables the crafting of an extraordinary Riesling from Washington state grapes. Named for Beethoven’s Third Symphony, Eroica reflects not only its variety and site, but also its heritage: bold and forward from its Washington roots, elegant and renowned from German inspiration.

A record growing season in 2013 resulted in an Eroica Riesling with sweet lime and tangerine aromas and subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. A blended statement of the finest Riesling vineyards in the state, Eroica showcases bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced mineralilty.

The 2013 Eroica Riesling offers sweet lime and tangerine aromas with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by avorful Washington Riesling fruit. The Eroica Riesling Gold is a blended statement of the best Riesling vineyards in the state.
