Pacific Rim — the preeminent domestic Riesling producer — introduces an exciting new Sparkling Riesling. At nearly 1,000 feet of elevation and with crystalline views of Mount Adams, our Selenium Vineyard — located north of Washington State’s Yakima River — is where we grow the grapes for our White Flowers Sparkling Riesling. Presenting beautiful floral aromatics and a clean finish, this dry sparkling wine is aged sur lie for a balanced and textured profile. White Flowers is a refreshing change from other sparkling wines.
At Pacific Rim, we’re Riesling zealots. In fact, 95% of our total production is Riesling wines. Riesling is consistently one of the fastest growing white varietals in the wine industry. Riesling simply is the most versatile, complex and food-friendly of all the noble grapes. No other varietal can be crafted to express so many different and wondrous characteristics — from bone dry with floral aromas to dessert sweet with spicy aromas.
More than any other varietal, Riesling purely expresses its terroir. And Washington’s Columbia Valley — home of Pacific Rim — provides the ideal soils and climate for growing world class Riesling. Purity is at the core of Pacific Rim’s winemaking philosophy. We exclusively use stainless steel tanks, expressing the truest character of vineyards. Our wines are fresh, vivid and elegant with delicate yet complex aromas. Riesling’s crisp, vibrant characteristics are a fresh alternative to heavier, oak-laden white wines.
