2017 Estate Dry Riesling


We are always excited when we release a new vintage of wine from our own two acres of Estate Riesling. A naturally late ripener, in our cool climate this grape variety always develops intriguing flavors and a perfect balance of sugar and acid. In 2017 we chose to barrel-ferment this Riesling and bottle-age it for an extra year to create additional complexity and heft on the palate. The wine greets us with citrus and floral notes, and then continues with a typical Riesling resinous quality before concluding with a bracingly dry finish.

As we all know, Riesling is the perfect white wine to pair with food, and this Estate Riesling will elevate almost any dish: fresh seafood, spring vegetables, herb-infused chicken.
