2017 Dry Riesling, "Redwing Vineyards"
This is the second vintage of our Old Vine Riesling coming from Redwing Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. For the second vintage we experiemented with native ferments and were really happy with the results! The native portion gave the wine more spice, almost like the nose on Gewurtraminer, expressing ginger, cinnamon, and citrus flower. The inoculated portion resulted in bright stone fruit and tropical aromatics. The blended and final product created a very complex and balance wine!
