2020 J Riesling
The "J" in the name stands for "Just Right" Riesling! Because of the popularity and demand of our Dry Riesling and Sweet Riesling, we thought it made perfect sense to craft a Riesling in a taste profile that was directly between our other popular Rieslings. Just the right amount of sweetness and complexity. Bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apricot.
As wine lovers crave alternatives to heavy and oaky white wines, Riesling is experiencing a true revival. Portraying bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apple, the wine exemplifies the harmony of Riesling. The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).

We pick our grapes relatively early (22-23 Brix). The Riesling juice is fermented at cold temperatures for 30 days and then aged in stainless steel tanks. We leave our dry wines sur lie post fermentation for five months and we stir the lees once or twice a week. All our Rieslings are fermented with native yeasts. We use no oak and no malolactic on this wine – it’s as pure and unmanipulated as it gets.
