Under Current "Breakaway" Riesling

white
$30.00

Our little babies are all grown-up! Although young in vine age, our newly planted block of Riesling is already starting to show some maturity. With all the notable cool-climate Riesling notes of green apple, fresh hay and limestone minerality; this toddler block is also already showing some aged Riesling character on the nose with hint of pertrol and lamb’s wool (lanolin) in the glass. The palate follows through with the addition of white honeysuckle and bright, palate cleansing acidity. A portion of the proceeds from this bottling will support Coast to Coast Against Children’s Cancer Foundation.

This is the first crop to come off the new plantings of Riesling (3 years old) here at the Creekside Vineyard. Fermented cool and slow in stainless steel to preserve aromatics and let the fruit shine. Fermentation was stopped just a little bit early to allow some residual sugar and balance the thirst-quenching acidity perfectly.
