Winemaker's Notes

The tangent Riesling offers a refreshingly vibrant mineral character, contrasted by fresh, juicy melon and peach flavors backed by bright highlights of citrus. It has racy acidity with a finish that dances on the palate. It pairs well with spicy Pacific Rim cuisine and Mexican dishes made with cilantro-based sauces.

Critical Acclaim

"Brilliant. That crisp, tart Edna Valley acidity provides the perfect counterpoint to the orange, peach, apricot, honeysuckle flower and mineral flavors. This unoaked Riesling is a joy to drink. The winemaker suggests Mexican dishes, but it’s super-versatile."
