2017 Dry Riesling, Edna Valley


*91 Points - Wine Enthusiast

One of the advantages to making wine in the Edna Valley is that we benefit from its cool climate and coastal influence. This means we have access to some of the best Riesling grapes in the area. In the case of our Edna Valley Dry Riesling, we’ve sourced the fruit from Talley Vineyards’ highly regarded Oliver’s Vineyard.

Following a challenging 2017 harvest (no rain, high humidity, and heat waves ring a bell?), our winemaking team worked hard to bring you a Riesling we can be proud of. Aromatically speaking, this wine offers fresh floral notes, a pinch of baking spice and Riesling’s typical minerality. On the palate we find ripe citrus fruit, lemon peel and crisp apricots, balancing the wine’s bright acidity. We highly recommend that you show off this food-friendly Riesling at the dinner table, pairing it chicken or seafood (especially shellfish). And remember: Dry Riesling also pairs beautifully with vegetarian entrees.
