On the nose, our White Riesling shows aromas of litchi, Royal Anne cherries, and white peach. This bright, effervescent, luscious wine bursts in the mouth with a mingling of peach, Bartlett pear, pineapple, grapefruit, and Satsuma mandarins.With an extremely long finish, this well-structured White Riesling begs for the accompaniment of food--anything needing a slight hint of sweetness to offset spicy or succulent foods, including Thai, Indian, and Chinese cuisines.This Estate Bottled White Riesling is made from heritage vines in the heart of the Napa Valley, a location perfectly suited for the development of the complex, aromatic, fruity and well-balanced structure of this wine.
Although officially still in a drought, Napa Valley received enough rain over the winter months to allow for a larger crop and what appears to be another great vintage. By mid-October, vintners throughout the Napa Valley were breathing a collective sigh of relief – and satisfaction – for the end of this year's harvest. The near-perfect growing season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14. Wines from the 2016 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars throughout Napa Valley and vintners are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them: a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar quality Napa Valley wines.
Our 2015 Estate Bottled Dry White Riesling is a delightful change from the typical Riesling . With a fresh and clean nose, the aroma of this lovely wine has hints of lychee and lemon zest and a slight spiciness that tingles the senses The fresh and clean feeling carries through the palate with vivid and clear notes of Meyer lemon and white peach. The mouth feel is pleasingly soft but with bright, lively elements of spice and fruit. This refreshingly dry wine lingers long after it has left your palate and leaves you with a new appreciation for Riesling’s delightful diversity.
