The long awaited third release of MTGA Dry Riesling is here! The 2016 harvest proved to be a great one though interesting in that the Riesling was the last thing to get to the winery (usually it is the first!). The grapes held their own really well and upon getting to the winery they were immediately pressed and drained in to stainless steel barrels for fermentation. There the juice would stay until January when it was racked to remove the heavy lees.
The resulting wine is… pretty. It has a great combination of the crisp and refreshing characteristics that a Dry Riesling can provide but also shows off some gorgeous floral notes. As usual, chill this baby down and enjoy with an ample amount of sunshine.
