Latah Creek Winery Huckleberry d'Latah
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|

Huckleberries are small, blueberry-like fruit. Despite efforts to cultivate and commercially grow this delectable treat, the only source for the huckleberry continues to be from the wild in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Those brave enough to compete with bears and other animals are rewarded with a dark blue-berry that is unique to the Northwest. Typically used for jams, jellies, and pies, we have found that the blending together of the berry's tart juice and our Riesling to be a real taste sensation. The subtle blueberry-like flavors of the huckleberry add nice complexities to the wonderfully intense spice and floral characters of our Riesling.
