Winemaker Notes

On November 8, 2013, 7.3 tons of R2 Riesling grapes were harvested with a chemistry of 20 Brix, a TA of 7.9 g/L, and a pH of 3.20. After pressing, the juice was settled for 3 days. The juice was then racked, warmed, inoculated with yeast, and fermented for 16 days. The wine was racked off the lees 30 days after fermentation stopped and cold stabilized for 3 months. The final wine chemistry was 11.5% alcohol, 1.7% residual sugar, a TA of 8.7 g/L, and a pH of 3.07. There were 357 cases of 2013 Riesling produced.

Food Pairing

With a hint of sweet, this Riesling pairs beautifully with dishes carrying a spicy or hearty component. Try as an aperitif with mild Bleu cheese, Brie, or a creamy Muenster.
