Shooting Star Riesling 2016
Buy a Bottle (750ml)
Riesling origins in Germany allow the vines to resist colder winters. We draw our Riesling from a vineyard locally owned by Rooster Vineyard. This Riesling vineyard ripens nicely while maintaining natural acids that help keep the wine balanced..
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.
