Winemaker's Notes

Receive one of three possible labels featuring original artwork by James Jean*

Diddley Bow is an exuberant, good ol' boy of a wine. Sometimes too loud, sometimes over the top, full of flavor, but in the end, always well mannered at the table and a good match for all the wonderful foods we associate with Riesling, like shrimp and grits and oyster po' boys.

Ripe lime and lemon flavors and aromas. The touch of Gewurztraminer providing lychee flavors. The wine is musky, minerally and has a good acid and sugar balance.

Critical Acclaim

"The Southern Gothic series begins with the 2009 Diddley Bow Riesling. Light straw-colored, it gives up an enticing aromatic array of spring flowers, baking spices, lemon-lime, and melon. Just off-dry in a Kabinett style, it has lively acidity and the balance to evolve for 2-3 years. It should drink well through 2017."
