The 2009 vintage enjoyed a balanced growing season with plenty of good weather, which allowed us to pick our Riesling grapes at full maturity. The juice is cold-fermented until just the right amount of sugar has been converted to alcohol, then racked and filtered to leave the desired amount of residual sweetness. Our Riesling is lower in alcohol than typical table wines, because a portion of the grape sugar is left unfermented.
Our 2009 Riesling has aromas and flavors of lemon and fig, with a strong floral component. The wine is finished in the medium-sweet range and balanced with ample acidity.
This well-balanced Riesling is an excellent pairing with seafood or and pasta in a cream sauce. The wine also pairs beautifully with mild cheeses.
