Great Northwest Wine, an online platform covering wine reviews and news, stamped WSU’s student-made wine, a dry riesling, with an “Excellent” this month. The riesling is the first in a series of student-made wines planned from the WSU viticulture and enology program. The new tradition of blended learning is bringing together students, alumni, winemakers, growers and wine enthusiasts to uncork the possibilities.
“A product of Lonesome Spring Vineyard and Olsen Vineyard, its aromatic profile focuses on Key lime, Granny Smith apple and pineapple,” Great Northwest Wine writes. “Inside, it’s bright and nicely crispy with more lime and apple, backed by an undertone of orange with a salty texture.” Read more from the review, here.
The next wine from the ’Blended Learning’ series, a red blend, was bottled in early January. Learn more about wine science at http://wine.wsu.edu/campaign/.
