Winemaker Alessandro Nel speaks about the Small Lot Dry Riesling 2022
12 - 14 Oct, 2022
This bright and refreshing wine is ready to drink now, or it will age beautifully through 2026.
March 13, 2023
An expressive Riesling with tropical fruit, orange blossom, green apple, and hints of white pear on the nose. It has a distinct minerality on the palate with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. The finish is crisp with lingering stone fruit.
Grapes are picked from our Dry Creek Vineyard and Red Rock Vineyard
An elegant wine made with grapes from our Dry Creek vineyard. 30% of the grapes were whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented in neutral oak barrels for up to 4 months, adding a rich texture to the palate. The rest of the grapes were destemmed, crushed, and left on the skins for 12 hours before a light pressing. A long and cold fermentation, with further lees maturation of up to 4 months gave the wine beautiful aromatics and an enhanced mouthfeel.
Food Pairing Notes
This aromtic Riesling will pair with an array of seafood dishes such as sushi or trout. Grilled sweet peppers and zuchinni or crudifte platters makes for a lovely pairing too.
