Vintage & Viticulture
2015 came in with some unusually and at times brutally cold weather. By April/May the weather normalized and June gave us plenty of rain. The growing season gave us hope with sunny warm weather which ran into harvest time. This allowed us to get good maturation of fruit.
A unique blend of 3 clones, 2 Germanic and 1 French Alsatian, giving our Riesling a distinct style and texture. Selected yeast strains are used for slow cool fermentation (12 degrees C) allowing maximum aromatic expression.
Fresh aromas of peach and pear and apple and lemon citrus. Light sweetness of fruit with a refreshing solid spine of acid. A very popular “social sipper” at our winery.
A food friendly wine that will match most lighter fare like fish, poultry and vegetarian dishes. Will also match spicier food, think Chinese or Thai.
