    Winemaker's Notes:

    It's normally pretty darned cool in the Alpine Valleys, but 2011 took the mercury to new lows. Grapes were harvested up to 4 weeks later than usual, and yields were particularly low - near ideal conditions for our cold-lovin' Riesling fruit! You'll see intoxicating floral aromatics and vivacious citrus fruits, with great persistence and concentration of flavor. Racy and versatile, it'll pair perfectly with sweet and spicy dishes alike.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light yellow. Fresh pear and nectarine aromas, along with suggestions of lemon curd and ginger. Juicy and light on its feet, offering tangy orchard fruit flavors and showing good vivacity. Finishes spicy and with gentle sweetness, leaving a poached pear note behind. This easy-drinking wine would be a great match for spicy Asian seafood dishes.
