2019 Riesling Speck Family Reserve

2019 Riesling Speck Family Reserve

Regular price $27.95

Description

A Mosel clone grown in a Burgundian climate on heavy clay, not slate. Adding to the sites' complexity is a notable southern exposure, pushing the ripeness relative to our cool climate. These elements make this wine a new world mash-up. Crisp but round, citrusy and tropical.

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) 
• All juice is press fractioned to separate the finest cut
• Fermented in stainless steel, at cool temperatures between 15-17°C to preserve freshness with a portion in 3000L neutral oak foudres (from 2018 forward).  

Food Matches

Grilled calamari, white pizza with goat's milk cheese, or as a refreshing aperitif.
