Weeks after the last red grapes are harvested we remember, “ oh yeah, there ’ s still Riesling out there.” This is usually a bitter-sweet realization, knowing that harvest is not yet complete, but we are beyond exhausted. The clusters are fragile from the first freeze of winter and they are hand harvested with extra care. Concentrated with baked apple and poached pear; this wine is a rich and beautiful expression of Riesling.
