2017 Riesling Speck Family Reserve

2017 Riesling Speck Family Reserve

Regular price $24.95

Description

This robust expression of our Riesling is the result of attention to the smallest detail of viticulture, a naturally reduced crop load per vine (thanks to the heavy clay soils of the Short Hills Bench) and 30+ year-old vines.

Winemaker's Notes

• Made from grapes grown on the oldest Riesling vines in the Henry of Pelham vineyards in the Short Hills Bench (planted 1984) 
• Yields of 2 to 3 tonnes/acre (~35-50 hL/ha)
• Cold fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks

Food Matches

The brininess of shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams are great with this wine. Pair with roast pork as well as pasta with white sauce.
