Winemaker's Notes

History: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that not all grapes are created equal, and what's more, riesling is the most unequal of them all, the Überweintraube. Riesling's one tragic flaw is not found in its intrinsic character, but rather in the impression conjured up by the images that typically adorn its labels. While effective during the heyday of the Weimar Republic, swooping black eagles and imposing gothic fonts are generally thought to possibly push the wrong buttons association-wise with the contemporary wine-buying public in search of gracious living. If, on the other hand, an earnest and ardent champion of riesling pursued a kinder, gentler form of world doonimation by wrapping a crisp, potentially aromatic and comparatively dry iteration of the noble grape [which happens to be a peerless accompaniment to all manner of Asiatic and equatorial cuisine] in an aquatic daydream, that would be a bass of an altogether different stripe.
