Vintage & Viticulture

2015 came in with some unusually and at times brutally cold weather. By April/May the weather normalized and June gave us plenty of rain. The growing season gave us hope with sunny warm weather which ran into harvest time. This allowed us to get good maturation of fruit.

Winemaker’s Notes

Slow, temperature controlled fermentation allowed this wine to hold a fresh crisp acidity. Wine was made in stainless steel tanks and the native fruit characteristics of this wine shows beautifully.

Tasting Notes

Riesling and Vidal marry well creating vibrant aromas of honeyed pear, golden peach and lively citrus notes which are replicated on the palate. The finish is clean and crisp with a very fresh acidity. The possibilities of food pairings are endless. Poultry, pork, fresh water fish and shellfish, vegetarian pastas, oriental stir-fry’s, and spicy curries would all work well.
