2016 Riesling

2016 Riesling

With a nose of lilac, butterfly bush flower blossom, and tropical fruits, this crisp, medium-bodied Riesling has a refreshing wet limestone minerality throughout. Dry apricot, peach, honey, red delicious apple, mango, and ripe kiwi flow through the mid-palate making this Riesling a delightful balance of a fruit and acidity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
With a nose of lilac, butterfly bush flower blossom, and tropical fruits, this crisp, medium-bodied Riesling has a refreshing wet limestone minerality throughout. Dry apricot, peach, honey, red delicious apple, mango, and ripe kiwi flow through the mid-palate making this Riesling a delightful balance of a fruit and acidity.
Vineyard Notes
Riesling grapes were sourced from multiple vineyards in Central Virginia which boast of the highest quality vines.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were harvested in mid-September of 2016, and immediately de-stemmed and crushed. The juice was transferred into stainless steel tanks for temperature controlled fermentation. After filtration, the wine was aged in stainless steel for a total of 4.5 months until bottled on February 6 and 7, 2017.
Food Pairing Notes
Tangy goat and sheep cheeses, bright salads, sushi, and spicy cuisines.

I was just at the Teacher Appreciation tasting. I really enjoyed this wine. Not too sweet but not too dry. It was a really nice wine for a nice spring day.

Love this wine! My girl friends and I did a wine tasting at Bull Run last month for a birthday, and their Riesling was so good I had to buy a bottle to bring home with me. I prefer sweet white wines that are on the drier end (for example, the Delaney is too sweet for my preferences), and this is perfect.
