(From 2012 Vintage) Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling is a pale gold color. The bouquet offers honey, pear and orange blossom. Sweet, bright acidity with pineapple and white peach.
(From 2014 Vintage) We pick our Riesling grapes early (20-21 Brix). We use only native yeast and ferment at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks – there is no use of oak barrels or malolactic fermentation. We stop the fermentation at about 7% residual sugar, and we clean the wine rapidly to retain as much freshness and fruitiness as possible. We leave a fair amount of natural carbon dioxide in the wine to create a lively mouth feel. The resulting wine is moderately sweet and refreshingly low in alcohol – less than – with flavors of pineapple and peach. Our Sweet Riesling brings perfect balance to all fiery fare – especially Thai, Szechwan and Caribbean cuisine… or simply enjoy as an aperitif.
