Picked in late November when the "Noble Rot" causes the sugars to be at their peak, our Late Harvest Riesling, at 13.5% residual sugar, has sweet honey and juicy ripe peach flavors with great balancing acidity. (375ml half-bottle)
Noted British wine writer Hugh Johnson proclaimed our previous vintage Dry Riesling to be our “best-made wine” and found this crisp and food-friendly Riesling “fresh, fruity, clean and very, very appealing.”
This botrytised White Riesling, grown at our Henry Ranch vineyard in Carneros, was harvested a full two months after the regular harvest. The grapes were fully infected with the “noble rot” (botrytis cinerea), a fungus which naturally increases sugars. Depending on the conditions, botrytis can be either beneficial or devastating to grapes. (375ml half-bottle)
Riesling lovers will be very happy to know that we have just bottled the third vintage of our terrific 100% Napa Valley Riesling, grown entirely at our Henry Ranch and named “Secco” for its drier approach to the grape.
