TASTING NOTE: When Stratus opened, it was the world's first LEED-certified winemaking facility. No pumps are used to move the wine; liquid is moved through gravity or in tanks and barrels. The Evergreen Riesling is zesty and balanced, with touches of honey alongside the apple, peach, lime and mineral oil. A marvelous stone undertone carries through to the end of the long, spicy finish. Pair with Dijon-glazed ham or a spicy vegan potato curry. (Vintages panel, March 2018) Price $ 19.95
