Shooting Star Riesling 2015
Buy a Bottle (750ml)
Riesling vines are generally hard wooded which means they can withstand colder winters. The Devoto Vineyard where our Riesling comes from is in one of the cooler spots in Lake County. This allows our Riesling to ripen fully and still hold on to the natural acids that balance the wine.
Winemaking for this varietal is fairly straightforward. The grapes are delivered in the coolest part of the morning and are crushed and pressed off the skins. The juice is then settled for 24 hours and racked off the lees. The fermentation begins at a cool 50 degrees and finishes up about 4 weeks later. The juice is fermented in stainless steel to preserve the freshness of this wine. This wine displays notes of honeysuckle, orange blossom, bright citrus and that true fresh grape aroma with hints of petrol typical of Riesling.
Pair this wine with traditional German sausages, or try a spicy Thai or Indian curry.
