Fort Berens Grapes = 100%
The grapes for this terroir-driven Small Lot Dry Riesling were carefully selected from 2 older blocks in our estate Dry Creek Vineyard. Our winemaker made this wine reductively with dry ice at crush and press. 6 hours of skin contact was given before pressing. It was inoculated with an aromatic yeast strain and then slowly fermented extra cold. It was aged for 5 months on the lees to add structure and to enhance the mouthfeel.
