2016 Riesling

2016 Riesling
2016 Riesling
 
 
This Riesling is off-dry and enticingly rich and complex following a long, warm growing season.  Flavors of apricot, peach, and mandarin are layered over bright, balanced acidity.  This wine will age gracefully, gaining aromatic complexity and texture.
 
TASTING NOTES
This powerful expression of Riesling is sourced from Hope Well vineyard, planted in 2008 on the east side of the Eola-Amity Hills. Fresh aromas of preserved lemon, bergamot, and flint belie the volume and depth of the palate: stone and tropical fruit over a terse vein of acidity and delicate, tensile structure. This young wine is delicious now, but will benefit from 3-5 years of aging. Ben Casteel
 
VINIFICATION
The grapes were whole cluster pressed and fermented cold in stainless steel drums. The fermentation stretched out for over a month. When we decided the wine was in balance, we stopped the fermentation and inhibited malolactic fermentation to maintain acidity. For complete fact sheet click here.
