2015 Single Acre Riesling
Bright and lively, this dry style Riesling is taut with energy. Floral notes of citrus blossom and white peach usher in more subtle hints of elderflower, lemon verbena, and ginger. The palate is streamline but has a generous presence displaying mouthwatering notes of lemon and peach with a minerality that is carried seamlessly to back of the palate. Enjoy now or can be cellared.
Warm and temperate spring weather prompted an early bud break as well as perfect weather for ideal fruit set, thereby producing larger, luscious clusters with lots of berries. The consistently dry weather and summer sun beautifully ripened the fruit until the end of August when a cold front came in and slowed down the assumed trajectory of our harvest. The cooler temperatures slowed down the sugar accumulation of the fruit and allowed for a longer hang time on the vine. Consequently, we were able to bring in the fruit as the flavors presented themselves. As a result, the wines are concentrated with complex layers and bright acidity.
