Vintner

“For some reason, great Rieslings remind me of a Norse legend. Crafted with balance and left with a touch of sweetness, this blonde elixir brings immense flavors and aromas that will ring out in your mouth like the Hammer of the Gods. Complex and age-worthy, I suggest you drink this beside my Viking funeral pyre. Thor would approve."

Tasting notes

This wine is an intense elixir, with aromas, flavors, residual sugar and high acid all contributing to a tropical and spicy experience.  Aromas are lemon custard tart, allspice, green apple and melons. Aromas follow the flavors and the finish is long and gloriously refreshing!

Production notes

Grapes were picked at 21-23 brix when they had reached full maturity but still held that classic Riesling acidity. 30% of the fruit was foot-stomped and then left on the skin for 2 hours before pressing. The fruit was then pressed at low pressure for 3.5 hours. Juice was fermented in 100% stainless steel at low temperatures to preserve the fresh fruit aromas. Filtered & bottled in January, 2020.

Other notes

This wine is crying out for herb seasoned pork chops with sriracha flavored apple slaw.  Or maybe it is time to break out that recipe for Thai dumplings or Korean BBQ.  Bottom line: don’t be afraid to go spicy!

 

When to drink: Now and for 20 years. This wine has great cellaring potential!
