While the vast majority of Riesling worldwide is fermented in stainless steel tanks, this wine spent time in small oak barrels during fermentation. The barrel fermentation on this Riesling gives it a rounder, more luxurious body while still letting the fruit and acidity shine through.
Silvan Riesling is all about capturing Riesling's exuberance while dialing in subtle flavors and textures from barrel fermentation. Look for aromas of lime peel and wet slate coupled with hazelnuts and bread dough. This wine is just off dry, with a distinctive creamy richness and refreshing finish.
