  • Label Description -
  • Select Harvest Meaning - "Select Harvest" in the context of Riesling refers to a winemaking technique where grapes are picked at a specific time to ensure a certain level of ripeness and concentration of flavors. The Select Harvest process involves allowing the grapes to remain on the vine for an extended period. During this time, the grapes undergo dehydration, which concentrates the sugars and flavors while maintaining the grape's acidity. The result is a wine with a higher level of richness, and complexity. We typically ferment this style of wine to medium sweet in residual sugar.
  • Growing Conditions - A hot, dry spring followed by summer rains allowed our vines to push far ahead of average and thrive into a mild, frostless Fall. With the long growing season, grapes had time to build character, creating wines with plenty of color, mouthfeel and identity.
