2010 Buty "The Beast - Sphinx - Wallula Vineyard" Columbia Valley Riesling

SKU #1076280 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From the biodynamic block at Wallula, this is truly a bone-dry style, with intense concentration. It’s fruity and complex, with grapefruit and lemon rind flavors that are backed with astonishing minerality. The acidity is high but natural and perfectly integrated. The dry extract gives texture to an amazingly-long finish. *Editors' Choice* Inner quote mark (7/2012)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (from grapes picked very late, with strong acidity and some botrytis; 12.8% alcohol and less than one gram per liter residual sugar): Medium yellow. Steely nose hints at green apple and orange blossom. Almost shockingly dry and tightly wound, but with good texture to the understated flavors of peach, minerals, flowers and brown spices. Austere and uncompromising for Washington riesling thanks to its its very low r.s. and firm acidity but the finish is long and surprisingly chewy. Not for the faint of heart. Inner quote mark (11/2011)
