Crafted from 100% Riesling, this wine displays fresh aromas of pears, honeydew melon and a hint of rose blossom. With great balance of fruit and minerality, the flavors mirror the aromas along with crisp acidity and great viscosity. This lively structure on the palate evolves into a delightfully invigorating finish.

The balance of richness and crispness make this wine an ideal match for everything from raw oysters and sushi to grilled halibut with lemon caper sauce.

Winemaker Notes
Riesling excels in cool climates, and like Pinot Noir, is highly influenced by the terroir of its planting site. After harvest, the grapes for this wines were gently pressed and the juice was racked into a stainless steel tank for fermentation. Our winemakers chose to maintain a small amount of residual sugar in the finished wine, which enhances the texture and balances a note of tartness on the finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Indian spiced short ribs with sriracha roasted peanuts.
