lemon peel, this Dry Riesling is tangy and refreshing with a crisp and lingering mineral finish.

Winemaker Notes

On November 9, 2011, 8.4 tons of R3 Riesling grapes were harvested with a harvest chemistry of 20.4 Brix, a TA of 9.0 g/L, and a pH of 3.17.
That same day 8.5 tons of R2 Riesling grapes were harvested with a harvest chemistry of 19.8 Brix, a TA of 7.0 g/L, and a pH of 3.11. The fruit was crushed, destemmed and pressed in a single lot and combined with the lot from R3. The overall chemistry was 20.1 Brix, 8.1 g/L TA, and a pH of 3.09. After pressing, the juice was settled for 2 days, and fermented to 0.8% residual sugar and was stopped with chilling on 01/09/12. The wine was racked off the lees on 01/19/12, and chilled for another 6 weeks to cold-stabilize.
