2017 Minus Tide Langley Vineyard Riesling

2017 Minus Tide Langley Vineyard Riesling


Tasting Notes: With beaming acidity and notes of honeysuckle, green strawberries, and grapefruit, this dry, mineral-driven Riesling is a great companion to food. The carbonic maceration enhanced its complexity, and a little skin contact added subtle texture.

Winemaking: 100% carbonic. Native yeast. Fermented in a closed-top egg-shaped fermenter for 14 days. Whole-cluster pressed. Finished primary fermentation in a stainless steel fermenter at cool temperatures to preserve the aromatics. Aged sur lie for 10 months in a neutral French oak barrel. Unfined and unfiltered.
