We pick our Riesling grapes early (20-21 Brix). We use only native yeast and ferment at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks - there is no use of oak barrels or malolactic fermentation. We stop the fermentation at about 7% residual sugar, and we clean the wine rapidly to retain as much freshness and fruitiness as possible. We leave a fair amount of natural carbon dioxide in the wine to create a lively mouth feel. The resulting wine is moderately sweet and refreshingly low in alcohol - less than - with flavors of pineapple and peach. Our Sweet Riesling brings perfect balance to all fiery fare - especially Thai, Szechwan and Caribbean cuisine… or simply enjoy as an aperitif.

Wine EnthusiastOrange rind, flower and botrytis aromas lead to medium-sweet peach and honey flavors. There's plenty of sugar but the acid balances it out.
