Winemaker's Notes:

This Beerenauslese-styled 2008 Select Late Harvest Riesling contains 21.61 grams of residual sugar. Complex aromas of honey, apricot, white peach, and orange peel carry over onto the palate with a clean viscous mouthfeel. The noticeable sweetness is entirely balanced by a crisp acidity in the finish.

We expect this wine to age gracefully for many years to come. You can enjoy it alone or match it with peaches, pumpkin, apples, or pears in your favorite configuration. Consider offsetting tastes, like sharp cheese. You can also think about pouring it over ice cream. All possibilities are hedonistic.

About Arrowood Vineyards & Winery:

Richard and Alis Arrowood founded Arrowood Winery in 1987 with a philosophy of making wines of singular and exceptional quality, using grapes grown exclusively in Sonoma County. Richard continually explores the diversity of Sonoma County, working with mostly the same grape growers he began cultivating in 1974, as Winemaster at Chateau St. Jean Winery. Arrowood is known for making small lots of benchmark Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Merlot, Viognier and Syrahs, among other varietals.
