Nefarious Cellars Riesling 2007

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Nefarious Cellars is located on the south shore of Lake Chelan within the new Lake Chelan AVA. Its owners state “We are a chick, two guys, and a dog striving to blow your mind…” Before you get any ideas, one of the two guys is baby George. The others are the husband and wife team of Dean and Heather Neff. He makes the reds; she makes the whites. Dean previously worked at Soter Vineyards and Deponte Cellars. The dog is Lucy.

The fruit from the 2007 Riesling comes from Stone’s Throw Estate Vineyard located in Pateros, Washington along the shores of Lake Chelan. Stone’s Throw, named due to its proximity to the family’s home, is planted with 2.5 acres of clone 9 and clone 12 Riesling.

Nefarious Cellars Riesling 2007

Almost completely clear in color. A pretty nose marked by sugared grapefruit, melon, and honey. A very clean, well put together taste with lots of mineral. A pleasing off-dry wine. Stone’s Throw Estate Vineyard.

Purchased from West Seattle Cellars for $18.
