Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Every once in a while, a casual stroll on the beach yields an unexpected treasure an unbroken shell, an unusually shaped stone, a piece of sea glass. Occasionally, the same thing happens with wine. Riesling grapes thrive in cooler climates that allow the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily, producing wines that range from bone dry to delectably sweet. Riesling’s high acidity is lusciously balanced by its fragrant floral aromas and sweet fruit flavors. SeaGlass Riesling is a perfect expression of Monterey County, with its cool ocean air, minimal rainfall and long growing season. Enjoy this distinctive Riesling as an aperitif or pair with spicy ribs or fresh lobster

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The aromatic nose of SeaGlass Riesling shows ripe apricot, sweet peaches, tropical fruit with floral undertones. Concentrated, rich flavors of perfumed white flowers are supported by juicy apricots, peaches and melon with a hint of honeysuckle. A balanced acidity leads to a lingering finish in an off-dry style. SeaGlass Riesling pairs well with spicy Asian dishes, smoked salmon, lobster salad and blue cheese.
