Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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. The lively structure on the palate evolves into a delightfully invigorating finish.
Vineyard Notes
The Paraiso vineyard is home to one of the few small blocks of Riesling planted in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Riesling excels in cool climates and is highly influenced by the terroir of its planting site.
Production Notes
After harvest, the grapes for this wine 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
Oysters, grilled halibut, or spiced short ribs with sriracha roasted peanuts.
