This off-dry Riesling highlights floral characters of Jasmine blossom and bergamot.  Both harmonize with citrus aromas of lime and ruby grapefruit, as well as dried apricots, white peaches, roasted almonds, and a hint of passion fruit.  Subtle layers of honeycomb combine with flinty, earthy characters to suggest minerality.
A bright sweetness initially leads to an acid-driven mid-palate showcasing a candied ginger flavor.  The intrinsic minerality on the finish is followed by subtle saline flavors that create a complex umami sensation.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The 2015 Norris McKinley Vineyard Riesling was sourced from our Estate vineyard located in the Ribbon Ridge AVA. Riesling can be a fairly late ripening varietal that thrives in warm sites. Nested at 400 feet elevation in a deep, loamy Sitton Soil, this Riesling received the ideal amount of heat to produce perfectly ripe grapes while still preserving a crisp acidity.
Production Notes
Grapes were picked at ultimate maturity, and harvested by hand in small picking bins to limit compaction and then whole cluster pressed. German Mosel yeasts were used to increase and highlight the floral aromatics and the mouthfeel characters of this Riesling. It was slow and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the aromatics, and then aged on the lees for 4 months to add layers of creaminess and distinctive structure. Our Riesling is made intentionally off-dry (according to the definition declared by the International Riesling Foundation Scale), to showcase tension and please the palate.
