Von Winning Riesling 2016
Our little harvest of stars is ever so slightly different this year, a little drier, more green and silvery, maybe less exotic-but this is '16. I asked them for what I thought would be a perfect everyday Riesling, and they created it for me. Not dry, not sweet, highly aromatic, lots of yin-yang, juicy and generous. A ton of heart and friendship went into its making, and even the label was designed by my neighbor across the street, the talented Eric Lewandowski, who knew exactly what I wanted-the sense of absurd good fortune when stars tumble into your outstretched hands-your winnings. That's how it feels when you take the first sip.
