Lot 459 | 2012 Columbia Valley
Riesling / Chenin Blanc
The 2012 vintage from the fan favorite best-seller Lot 359!
Free Ground Shipping on all orders of 12 or more bottles.
Bright, citrusy aromas wrapped around notes of banana and orange marmalade. On the palate, what you smell is what you taste, complemented by a yin and yang of Riesling richness and beautifully balanced Chenin Blanc zest. Kiss of residual sugar on the palate, too. As good as any Columbia Valley Riesling project we’ve ever done.

Lot 459 is the latest from the producer of our mega-popular Lot 359 (which was our #2 selling white wine of 2013 behind the Arroyo Seco Chards). Like 359, it’s a perfect example of how Washington continues to excite the marketplace with compelling wines that offer terrific values, and is sourced from 30 to 40-year-old vines in the Columbia Valley.
I just LOVE this wine, and can selfishly drink the whole bottle. Crisp, refreshing, not too sweet.....a great treat after working in the garden. Unfortunately it's been out of stock, look forward to having more soon. Would give more stars if they were there.
This wine was a little too sweet and sparkly for my taste.
Love this wine
Don't normally like Rieslings but this one is very crisp and and fruity. Not as sweet as a normal Riesling, everyone I've served it to has also liked it. Like to have a few bottles on hand for company.
A mouth party
so refreshing and kind to drink, I prefer a have full of pure-filtered ice and sharp cheese and lemon toast squares ,for lunch-brunch and am Sunday too...:)
Love This Wine
This wine works in so many ways. When I'm just watching sports or I've cooked a great meal. Grilled items pair nicely! (Fish, Chicken, Veg) I can't stop ordering!
The Right Sweetness and Fruit
I have always enjoyed a smooth and sweet Riesling. My favorite has always been from a small producer - Brotherhood. The Lot 459 had a bit lesser sweetness which was even better than my favorite. Lot 459 is the best Riesling I have had in a long time
Perfect Balance of Sweetness and Flavor
I ordered this for my girlfriend since she doesn't like dry reds like I do. I have only had a couple glasses of the 459, but to me it wasn't bad at all. We had it with Salmon and it paired nicely. Seems to go well with any oily fish or vegetables sautéed in coconut or olive oils, like asparagus or mushrooms etc. I will definitely keep a few bottles of this around for guests that insist they cant drink dry reds.
Great Food Wine
A bit sweet but I paired it with St Agur blue cheese and WOW! Absolutely delicious.
This is an okay wine, a little sweeter than I prefer. Definite fruit note.
No special riesling compared to Bavarian Franken Wines
I may be unusual, but I found this wine to be far less than what I expected as compared to what I grew up with in Germany. The combination of grapes does NOT go well together and the wine did not last more than a day after opening.
Not something I would recommend and it discouraged me from joining the wine club.
