2016 Sparkling Riesling, Wirz Vineyard

On the pallet the wine is Brut, dry, with a surprisingly rich body. Beautiful clean finish.

VINEYARD

The Wirz vineyard is located in Cienega Valley (San Benito County), in the foothills of the Gabilan Mountain Range ~1100 ft above sea level and ~25 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The Riesling vines are approximately 70 years old grown on granite and limestone soils. The vines are head trained and dry farmed with the exception of the last two drought years they received minimal winter supplemental water.

WINEMAKING

Made by the traditional champagne bottle method. The wine spent 13-16 months under tirage and upon disgorgement, no dosage was added.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of pear, lime, and hint of blossom. Also heady biscuit and bread. On the pallet the wine is Brut, dry, with a surprisingly rich body. Beautiful clean finish.
