2016 Dry Riesling

2016 Dry Riesling
2016 Dry Riesling

An instant classic– a citrus, floral and mineral-driven Riesling with racy acidity and generous length, made to reflect the outstanding terroir of Silver Thread Vineyard and our venerable growers around the region.  IRF-scale “Dry.”

A strategic blend of grapes: 30% STV Estate Vineyard, 57% Doyle Fournier Vineyard, 13% Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard, this wine combines the best attributes of three classic sites.

Pairing suggestions: truly everything pairs well with dry Riesling.

Tasting notes

Aromas of flower shop, white peach, lemon and wet stone.  Medium body with crisp fruit and crunchy acidity.  Long finish expresses grapefruit and minerals.  Drink now or cellar 5-8 years.

Wine Advocate--90 points--"Dry, but by no means austere, this is fresh, concentrated and nicely built, with a clean finish and lively demeanor…balanced as well as impressive."--MS

 

Wine Enthusiast--89 points--"Vibrant aromas of underripe peach and apple blossom focus around a core of lemon-lime on the nose. There's a roundness to the dry palate, where ample acidity outlines crunchy green apple and apricot. A clean saline note lingers on the finish."--AP

 

Wine Spectator--87 points--"Pure, with a friendly, rounded edge to the mix of pear, green apple and green almond flavors. Has just enough zip through the finish to stay lively." -JM
