We harvested the grapes for our 2019 Dry Riesling over the course of four days, centered around a frost event. The resulting wine is a combination of juice from pre- and post-frost fruit, which yielded a complex blend from our three Riesling plots.
At nearly 6,000 feet above sea level, our estate vineyard is one of the highest elevation Riesling plantings in the world. These vines struggle through a combination of ancient river rock and calcium-rich soil to produce a lean, racy, mineral-driven expression of this noble grape.
The wine is clear and bright, with focused aromas. Sharp flavors of tart peach, lime zest, and white orchard flowers come through with a clean, crisp finish. Dry Riesling is the ultimate food-pairing wine. With bright acidity and a clean finish, our 2019 Dry Riesling pairs beautifully with shellfish, charcuterie, vibrant salads, roasted chicken, or a cheese plate.
