Tasting Notes

The 2006 Reserve Riesling illustrates the steely backbone for which our vineyard is known. The wine shows aromatic minerality, lime and green apple on the nose. It is bone dry with zingy minerality and stone fruit and a fresh, lingering finish and will age well.

Winemaker Notes

On October 16-18, 2006 10.7 tons of grapes were harvested (19.2 Brix, 11.4 g/L Ta, 2.89 pH), sorted to remove botrytis-affected clusters then whole-cluster pressed. The juice was settled overnight, chaptalized to 22 Brix and inoculated with Epernay II yeast. The wine was fermented cool (55 to 60 F) for 72 days then left on the fine lees to enhance mouthfeel and add weight. Technical adjustments included cold and heat stabilization, filtering and the addition of ascorbic acid to prevent atypical aging.

Food Pairing

Herb-roasted chicken and the cuisine of Alsace call out for this excellent Dry Riesling.
