Winemaker Notes
A tropical fruit salad experience is the best way to describe the flavors that come out of the 2020 vintage of Semi- Dry Riesling. Exuberant notes of guava and papaya linger almost as long as the summer nights when this wine is best enjoyed. This year’s vintage was processed differently than previous, with a week-long cold soak before fermentation to provide a cleaner finish and fermentation was halted to provide the correct amount of sugar for this style of Riesling and acidity brought with it. This wine shows favorable aromas of pineapple and wild strawberries. The winemaking crew recommends enjoying this wine with a smooth and buttery Raclette cheese as it blends really well with the acidity of the wine or with a fresh mahi filet with your choice of grilled or sauteed seasonal veggies.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this easy drinking Riesling with light salads and sandwiches, shellfish, poultry, dishes with citrus or spicy sauces, mild cheeses and fruity desserts.
