2017 HANGING DELTA RIESLING

2017 HANGING DELTA RIESLING

These single vineyard Rieslings (Hanging Delta and Lake Dana) highlight the unique geology of our vineyards.

Fruit was hand-picked and whole cluster pressed. Fermentation was initiated using the classic pied de cuve method, meaning that a small quantity of fermenting wine from another tank was added to the juice instead of a cultured yeast inoculum. Fermentation lasted five weeks, and was arrested by cooling when the wine contained considerable residual sugar. Using the pied de cuve fermentation method creates a more complex wine with subtle fruit flavors. 

In the mouth, the unctuous sweetness is balanced by racy acidity. Wines made in this style can be aged for 20 years.
