Houges most popular wine, a sweet, fresh, fruity wine with a clean, tangy finish.
The aromas and flavors include that of dried apricot, tangerine, and powdered
sugar with a hint of cocoa and mint on the finish. It has excellent sugar to acid
Eastern Washington’s low annual rainfall and cool nights during the growing
season make it the perfect area for producing consistently great late harvest wines.
Hogue has developed a style with Late Harvest White Riesling that includes a
moderate level of sweetness, richness, viscosity and crisp balancing acidity with
just a hint of complexity from the noble rot, Botrytis cinerea. The Hogue Late
Harvest White Riesling has aromas and flavors of dried apricot, tangerine, orange
peel, vanilla, raisin, and powdered sugar. Excellent as an aperitif or paired with
fruit sorbets, poached pears or warm apple crisp. The wine has good sugar to acid balance.
