Grown on our own Storm Haven Vineyard, this Riesling was hand cultivated with minimal interference and natural low cropping to create a wine that truly expresses the Storm Haven Vineyard site.
The 2013 vintage had an early start and a hot, dry growing season that brought excellent ripeness and a very early harvest before September rains could impact the crop. Hand-picked in two separate passes to bring complexity and the benefit of differing levels of ripeness, this Riesling might be our best to date.
Mineral driven with Apricot, mango meat and a citrus profile with a long finish and delicate balance, this wine will develop for decades in the cellar.
Tasting Notes: Mineral driven apricot, mango meat, citrus, Asian pear aromatics lead to a complex and concentrated mouth with delicate tension and pure Storm Haven expression. Tremendously long finish with creamy balance of acid and a kiss of honeyed lemon sweetness.
