The Vintage

Record-breaking winter rains filled our reservoirs and recharged the soil. Spring and early summer were warm, leading to very strong growth in the vines. The rest of the summer was more typical with warm days and cool nights, providing perfect conditions for the developing grapes. Harvest started early and was nearly complete before the tragic wildfires started in early October. Our yields for the season were slightly lower than average and the resulting wines are classic—with complex flavors and our signature brightness on the palate.

The Wine

Our Dry Riesling is fresh and fragrant with gorgeous jasmine, honeyed white peach and grapefruit aromas. Dry, but succulent, the palate is powered by bright, mouthwatering acidity and a refreshing minerality that animates the wine’s long and lively finish.

Food Affinities

Seared Ahi, lemon chicken, green curries & Southwestern dishes are a few of the matches for this versatile wine. It is also great for sipping while you’re cooking!
