Winemaker's Notes

It is my pleasure to announce that there is at least one thing in life that appears to be improving with time and that is our comprehension of the riesling grape. The 99 Pac Rim is a bit of a breakthrough. Firstly, we have allowed just the teensiest bit of residual sugar to repose in the finished wine - "letting love in," as it were, in the parlance of my twin-brother-seperated-at-birth, Terry Theise. We contrived to boost the acid a little bit, picking the grapes a little earlier and the result is a fresher, more vibrant wine with greater retention of primary fruit. And as an added bonus and at no extra charge, the wine actually seems to work far better with sushi and other umami-intensive cuisine that Pac Rims pasado. Very distinctive green apple and elder-blossom Mosel nose. If weve not gotten through to you by now, now this is the time.
