Riesling Solstice Vineyard
This is a small crop from old vines planted in 1972 . hand picked and fermented with its native yeasts. The grapes are more exposed at Solstice making the wine rich in phenolics.
The wine shows notes of peach and kiwi with a very subtle and delicate nose. This is a solid wine with broad shoulders on the palate and some pear and lemon flavors. The masculinity of this wine comes from a high phenolic content combined with a 13.5% ethanol and a 1.14% Residual Sugar. For all this, the wine is not sweet and shows perfect balance. The wine is truly cellar worthy and will age for a very long time (10 plus years).
The alcohol is 13.5%, acid 0.71%, pH is 2.89 and Residual Sugar is 1.14%.
We would recommend food that allows the palate to explore the wine: cheeses with fresh bread or a risotto
