Tasting Notes

Honeysuckle and lime on the nose with lemon pith up front on the palate. Refreshing acidity leads to a grapefruit and flint finish.

Winemaker Notes

5.7 tons of R3 grapes and 3.6 tons of R2 grapes were harvested by hand on October 20, 2015 with harvest chemistry of 20.4 Brix, a TA of 7.3 g/L, and a pH of 3.21.  The fruit was crushed, destemmed, and pressed on that day. After pressing, the juice was settled for 5 days, then racked to other tanks, racked back, warmed, and inoculated with Epernay 2 yeast. The Dry Riesling fermented at ~ 64F for 31 days before being stopped with chilling on 11/26/15. The wine was racked off the lees on 01/07/16 and chilled to 35F for 14 weeks to cold-stabilize it before bottling.

Food Pairing

Dry Rieslings offer a versatility in food pairings with which few other wines can compare. Look to try this wine with asian dishes featuring ginger prominently, or allow the acidity to help cut through a cream and lemon pasta sauce. For a European style dessert, offer a selection of cheeses and a healthy portion of fresh honeycomb with the 2015 Dry Riesling.
