From the Winery:
"2016 produced another beautiful Riesling Kabinett. We love this as our go-to white and have found that it pairs with a variety of seafood, freshwater fish and especially Pork BBQ. This wine is made from the first several harvest passes of two different vineyards. It's bright, fresh, mineral and borderline dry. The mix of soils and clones provides a lot of complexity. There is some Granny Smith apple, pineapple, quince, and a little sea-spray for good measure. This was harvested by hand in 4 passes, gently pressed and allowed to settle by gravity. The fermentation took place over the course of two months in Stainless Steel. There were no commercial yeasts added, no added acid, sugar, or chemical nutrients."
