Tasting Notes

Warm aromatics of ripe peach mingle with tropical fruit notes on the palate. With crisp hints of lime and candied lemon peel, this Dry Riesling is tangy and refreshing with a lingering, mineral finish.

Winemaker Notes

On October 30, 2013, 18.85 tons of Riesling was harvested with a harvest chemistry of 20 Brix, a TA of 8.4 g/L and a pH of 3.2.  The fruit was crushed, destemmed and pressed in two lots on the same day.  After pressing, the juice was settled for 3 days and then fermented with heating to maintain it at ~62°F for 35 days before being stopped with chilling on December 11, 2013.

The final wine chemistry was 11.4% alcohol, 0.7% residual sugar, a pH of 2.98 and TA of 7.6 g/L. On the first day of bottling, the free SO2 was at 42ppm and ranged between 50-59ppm on the remaining days of bottling.  In total, 1292 cases of 2013 Dry Riesling were produced.

Food Pairing

This Riesling is extremely versatile. Its crisp nature beautifully compliments dishes of all types. Sweet and savory appetizers as well as seafood dishes create a broad spectrum and fusion of flavors. From grilled cajun-seasoned shrimp to pesto pasta, the possibilities are endless.
