Winemaker Notes

On November 2nd, 2011, 18.3 tons of R2 Riesling grapes were hand-harvested, and had a harvest chemistry of 19.4 Brix, a TA of 7.7 g/L, and a pH of 3.03. All of the fruit was crushed, destemmed, pressed, and settled for 3 days. Fermentation lasted for 50 days and stopped at ~1.8% residual sugar. The wine was racked off the fermentation lees 2 weeks after the fermentation was stopped and cold stabilized.

In April the Riesling and Riesling Ice Wine juices were blended to produce the 2011 Riesling.

 

Food Pairing

With a hint of sweetness, this 2011 Riesling pairs beautifully with spicy Thai or curry dishes, or try it as an aperitif with mild blue cheeses.
