    Winemaker's Notes:

    California wines typically are "all about the fruit," while their European counterparts tend to be more elegant, are finely structured and "smack of the earth." Gainey Vineyard's 2009 Santa Ynez Valley Home Ranch Riesling is the best of both of worlds: blessed in the fruit department, yet it is decidedly Germanic in style. Whole-cluster pressed into stainless-steel tanks and fermented at cold temperatures for a full three months, the wine is vinified to optimize the Riesling variety's wonderfully perfumed aromas and crisp, fruity flavors.

    The aromas of this lovely wine fully capture the high-toned floral qualities, including jasmine, honeysuckle and rose petal, as well as seductive honeyed peach, apricot and spice scents that endear Riesling to so many wine lovers. On the sleek, beautifully composed palate, concentrated fresh apple, spiced pear and ripe peach flavors lead to a dry, spicy finish with refreshing acidity and minerality that pave the way for the next sip. An ideal aperitif, this "serious" California Riesling also complements sushi and sashimi, lighter fish dishes, roast turkey, spicy Asian cuisines and soft cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A nice, refreshing Riesling, clean and crisp, with rich flavors of citrus fruits, minerals, honeysuckle and jasmine. The residual sugar is .63%, making it just a litt off-dry. No oak on this polished gem.
