Winemaker's Notes:

Monterey County offers ideal growing conditions for cool-climate grapes, where high winds, dry days and bay fogs lead to full, forward fruit flavors and ideal acidity.

Brass Tacks Riesling offers crisp clean notes of fresh peach, honey and apricot with mineral qualities that is balanced by bright acidity. This Riesling offers an "off-dry", or slightly sweet, style that makes is a perfect companion for lighter fish dishes and Asian take-out.

Let's get down to brass tacks, shall we? At Brass Tacks, we believe the essence of California wine is the fruit. So our winemaking starts in the vineyard, where we cultivate the unique characteristics of each varietal and vineyard. The result is a wine that isn't over-manipulated, allowing the personality of the fruit to shine through.

brass tacks (noun) - the most fundamental considerations; essentials; realities (usually used in the phrase "get down to brass tacks").
