2018 Single Acre Riesling
Sourced from vines planted in 1997, our Single Acre Riesling is round and juicy with a vibrant finish.
Made in a dry style, our Riesling was fermented and aged in stainless steel barrels for seven months. The nose shows delicate notes of lychee and white peach. On the palate, the hints of pear, Meyer lemon, honeycomb and wet stone carry the rich viscosity to a vibrant finish.
On average, the 2018 vintage was a warmer and drier growing season. The vintage kicked off with an early bud break. June saw a cool, wet weather period during bloom put the vintage back on track for a traditional September harvest. Cluster sizes were smaller and more conducive to producing high-quality wines. The most notable climatic feature to the 2018 vintage, was our extended summer harvest weather that continued into early November. This allowed us to pick based on ripe flavors and near perfect natural acidity.
