From the winemaker:

Eroica is the result of a special partnership of German and American winemakers to craft an extraordinary Riesling from Washington state grapes. This is more than a blend of two estates, Dr. Loosen from the Mosel and Chateau Ste. Michelle from the Columbia Valley: It's an intermingling of Old World and New World philosophy and technique. Eroica reflects not only its variety and site, but also its heritage: bold and forward from its Washington roots, elegant and sinewy from German inspiration. Named for Beethoven's Third Symphony, Eroica is truly a concert of Old World and New World Riesling.

T A S T I N G N O T E S

Eroica delivers a unique combination of tangerine, grapefruit and pear aromas characteristic of Washington state Riesling, melded with the slate and spice notes and lively acidity associated with German Riesling. We believe we took an extra step toward the Germanic style with added minerality and exceptional refinement in this year's blend.
