This fruit for this Riesling came from Pear Blossom Vineyard in the Columbia Gorge (WA). It was exposed to some summer fires and slightly tainted with smoke. We felt this was an atribute and embraced the smokiness and called it "Rauchwein" which means "Smoke Wine." You can pick it up in the finish, like a touch of Mezcal. It's off-dry in style.
