This wine boasts layered complex aromas of pear, apricot, and mandarin fruit, along with a slight touch of gardenia on the nose. These intriguing aromas lead into a wine that is balanced with a nice blast of bright fruit flavors on the palate and zesty acidity. Tastes of pear, bright tropical fruits, green apple, fresh nectarine and a hint of orange peel linger on the palate and work themselves into a nice savory finish.

We continue to make our Riesling in a style which most perfectly reflects the delicate flavors of the grape. We pick the grapes in the cool of the night, which allows the fruit to be delivered in optimum condition. With this harvest in late October and early November, we were able to achieve intense, pure fruit flavors while retaining great acidity and balance. All of the lots were cold fermented in upright stainless-steel tanks with Elegance yeast.
