Warm aromatics of ripe peach mingle with tropical fruit notes on the palate. With crisp hints of lime and candied lemon peel, this Dry Riesling is tangy and refreshing with a lingering, mineral finish.

The final wine chemistry was 11.4% alcohol, 0.7% residual sugar, a pH of 2.98 and TA of 7.6 g/L. On the first day of bottling, the free SO2 was at 42ppm and ranged between 50-59ppm on the remaining days of bottling. In total, 1292 cases of 2013 Dry Riesling were produced.
