2013 Potter Valley Riesling

Nose Opens with rich peach and cut apple aromas.   Lychee and rose high tones along with wet stone and class Riesling spice round out the nose.    

Palate Soft and round entry on the palate with great weight and acid balance, this wine offers juicy layers of apricot and white peach flavors.

Finish All rounded out with a long rich finish of spiced pear tart.

Vintage Weather

2013, much like 2012, was a wonderful year for cultivating Riesling. With a warm, even growing season free of any challenging weather, our grower in Potter Valley once again delivered excellent quality fruit. The warm and dry spring caused the buds to push earlier than usual, which worked in our favor as it allowed for a longer-than-average growing season that resulted in great flavor development. This vineyard site, combined with cellar practices that have been fine-tuned over 42 years, yields a delicate and beautifully balanced wine that is loaded with nuance.
