2017 Tessier Riesling (bone-dry) "Zabala Vineyard" Arroyo Seco, Monterey, CA
One of our favorite wineries comes this beautiful and very very very very dry Riesling.
From the Winery:
Ponder your past or future or just live in the present with this dry and racy Riesling. The grapes were lovingly trampled in the vineyard and allowed to sit on the skins for 24 hours to capture the beautiful aromatics before performing a whole cluster press. Fermented at a cool temperature in stainless steel, the Zabala Riesling was also kept on the lees to give a depth and a creamy texture. Lemon yellow in color, a wave of chamomile, spicy ginger, and aromas steeped in white tea and citrus peel tickles nose. Preserved lemon, clover honey, stone fruit and fresh hay on the palate swirl with starfruit for a satiny apricot nectar texture. Bottled on Valentine’s Day, your taste-buds will do a happy love-dance with the zesty acidity. Low alcohol means you can drink more! 12.5% alc. 317 cases produced.
