The 2008 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling is the product of a drought vintage, which is becoming the norm. However, wonderful balance has been the hallmark of this vineyard since our first vintage in 1979 and in 2008 we achieved low pH and high acid that winemakers dream about. Passionfruit, pear and apple aromas and flavors are backed up by lovely intense lemon-lime with a slatey, mineral dry finish, typical of the Hanlin Hill Vineyard.
This tangy white brims with lemon, pineapple and mayflower flavors, lingering easily on the generous, focused finish. Drink now through 2018. 800 cases imported.
As with all the top screwcapped rieslings, not a breath of reduction; a wine still tightly wrapped up, but the perfect balance and length give a gold-plated guarantee the wine will grow exponentially in bottle over decades to come.
