2019 YOUNG VINES RIESLING
This wine is now produced from the grapes off 2 vineyard plantings of younger Riesling. Most of the fruit from the vineyard planted in 2000 and the remainder from 20 rows we planted in 2014. We still see a stylistic difference between the juice of the original blocks of fruit we planted in 1975. Therefore we will continue to make the ‘young vines riesling’, now identifiable to so many of our clients.
Delicious orange citrus notes and a stone-like mineral element are a terrific introduction here. These qualities proceed to the palate, together with bright, red apple and a powdery talc note. The palate is crisp and clean, while maintaining the rounded quality of white stone fruit, coupled with chalky texture and a clean, bright line of acidity. A mouth-watering, lingering finish completes the drinkability factor here.
