Winemaker Notes
Riesling is a German cool-climate varietal, best known for its highly aromatic character. 60% of the Riesling for our 2014 was grown on our estate and 40% came from vineyards in Monterey County. We blended in 15% Gewürztraminer to add an additional layer of complexity to the wine. Our Riesling displays bright flavors and aromas of citrus blossom, mandarin orange zest, and jasmine tea complemented by a touch of honey.

Production Notes
2014 was another vintage of both high quality and quantity of fruit. We had an early bud break, which began in the last week of February, and a warm spring that led to slightly earlier bloom and fruit set. Few incidents of frost and a warmer than average summer allowed the grapes to ripen at an optimal pace. We harvested the fruit September 26th, 2014 to October 3, 2014 in cool temperatures to ensure cold fruit at pressing.
Vineyard Notes
The Santa Ynez Valley is located just two hours north of Los Angeles and five hours south of San Francisco, adjacent the cold Pacific Ocean. With the greatest concentration of wineries in Santa Barbara County - roughly 18% of its total land planted to vineyards - it is among the favorite weekend destinations for wine aficionados in the Central Coast region.
