An early bottling captured some natural CO2 which enhances the mouth
feel and crispness of this wine.
This Riesling comes from our Four Mile Creek Appellation site, with
various clonal crosses and a blend of the east and west blocks. This
site provided us cool night conditions in the Fall which captured the
freshness and acidity of this wine. These grapes were harvested and
tripled berry sorted and then pressed gently and long. Various lots
were fermented at different temperatures and with different inoculums
(wild, organic, and conventional yeast strains). The soft petulance lifts
the wines and preserves its freshness and celebrates the great weight
of this wine. It’s a juicy wine with just the right amount of unfermented
sugar to balance it out.
Food Pairing Notes
This Riesling is very versatile, can be paired with Oysters, fresh scallops
or lemon chicken. Riesling would round out a Greek meal perfectly. On
the other hand, this would also work great with dishes that have a little
spice, think Dan Dan Noodles, Butter Chicken, Vindaloo Curry.
Pair with salty cheese, like gorgonzola, aged gouda, or feta.
