Winemaker's Notes

"Our 2006 Riesling displays varietally-expressive aromas of fresh apple, lime, white peach and mineral, with lovely jasmine and honeysuckle scents emerging with airing. Its sleek green apple, lemon-lime and spicy peach flavors are enhanced by distinctive varietal notes of slate and wet stone with this refreshing minerality extending into the wine's crisp, vibrant finish.

An ideal spring and summer patio and picnic wine, it's also marvelously versatile with food, especially sashimi, delicate white-fleshed fish, roast turkey, Asian-inspired cuisines and soft cheeses."
Winemaker Kirby Anderson
