Winemaker Notes

On October 27, 2012, 10.7 tons of Riesling grapes were harvested with a harvest chemistry of 20.4 Brix, a TA of 8.1 g/L, and a pH of 3.10. The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed and pressed in a single lot. After pressing, the juice was settled for 3 days, fermented with the addition of Ultrazyme pectolytic enzymes and 32 ppm sulfur dioxide. The cleared juice was racked to another tank, warmed, and inoculated with Epernay 2 yeast. The fermentation stuck at 2.5% RS, so a starter yeast culture was of V- 1116 was re-introduced to the main fermentation on 12/13/12 and was stopped with chilling on 12/31/12. The wine was racked off the lees on 01/15/13, and chilled for another 8 weeks to cold-stabilize. The wine was sterile filtered at bottlings on 4/5/13 and 6/5/13.

Food Pairing

Try it as an aperitif with salty appetizers like prosciutto and olives. Seafood dishes that have an Asian or lemon twist also make a spectacular combination.
