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.

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.
