On the nose, this lively and fresh Riesling has delicate notes of lychee, rose petal, lemon grass, and dried apricot. It is nicely balanced, slightly off-dry with a rich, creamy texture, and lingering acidity.
The grapes had a long hanging time in the vineyard, which ensured optimal ripeness. The fruit was whole cluster pressed under inert conditions (no oxygen) to preserve the delicate aroma that developed during fermentation. A cold sensitive yeast was used, and the wine cooled to 4 degrees to halt further fermentation once the optimal balance between sugar and acid was reached.
Food Pairing Notes
Thanks to the balance of acidity and sweetness, this Riesling pairs beautifully with strong Asian and spicy Indian dishes as well as sushi, kimchi, and spiced duck.
