TASTING NOTES

Brilliant green-tinged yellow, our 2018 Riesling has aromas of orange blossom and bergamot. Lush flavors of tangerine, nectarine and Meyer lemon carried through on a tense vein of acidity.

ABOUT OUR RIESLING

The 2018 vintage was a quality vintage that had delightful worry-free weather. Despite the larger than average crop, berries were small, concentrated and there was ample time for fruit to slowly ripen. Mild summer weather led into our typical harvest date in the end of September. An exceptionally mild autumn extended harvest into the third week of October with no rains to interrupt development. Our naturally high elevation and the mild summer retained good acid in the fruit.

Our 2018 Riesling is 100% estate fruit, composed of two lots harvested in late October. The fruit was whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperature for 30 days.
