2015 Riesling

2015 Riesling

Indulge on flavors of honeysuckle and citrus blossom

Medium Sweet (on the International Riesling Foundation scale). Boisterous aromas of honeysuckle and citrus blossom. Flavors of candied white raisins and pear-laced minerals. Medium-bodied with a velvety texture and a long tropical fruit finish. Pair with spicy Chinese, Thai or Indian or partner with peach cobbler. Versatile.

2015 was warm and dry with low humidity. Perfect amounts of rain in July and September. Fruit was universally clean and very ripe. Long Island was blessed with another standout vintage.
