This wine, along with our Rosy, has caused quite the debate between semi-sweet wine aficionados! We highly recommend a bottle of both to determine which team you’re on. We’ve always called our semi-sweet style our “Vintage” so guests can easily distinguish the style of Riesling they enjoy when they order online or visit our tasting room. Winemaker, Leo Gabica, has found his rhythm for creating this well-balanced Riesling : sparkles of acidity tuck behind citrus notes with a palate of honeydew melon, golden apple, and a twist of orange peel.
A Note from Winemaker, Leo Gabica
“Our 2020 Vintage Riesling was whole cluster pressed and fermented for 6 months in our stainless steel tanks. Our Founder, Dan, surprised me one year with the large blending tank we desperately needed. We originally thought we would be a 2,000 case production winery; incredibly, we are between 13,000 - 16,000 cases each year. This blending tank that Dan surprised me with had my name and our original logo etched into the side. I have never been more gracious, both for the gesture and the blending tank. It brings me tremendous joy to have our Vintage Riesling in that tank each year. We have so many memories with Dan, and creating this 2020 Vintage Riesling is a great reminder of the adventures this winery has brought. Enjoy the bright aromatics, semi-sweetness balanced by a nice acidic backbone. You will find hints of honeydew and honeycrisp apples with a splash of orange peel - cheers.”
