The questions is: Can you make good wine from 65 year-old vines? And the answer is a resounding yes! Peter's parents planted our Riesling vines in 1948, and yes, we've had to replace a few no longer bearing fruit. But our philosophy has always been the older the vine, the more elegant the wine. The 2012 vintage is palest straw in color with .9 percent residual sugar, which frames stone fruit and cantaloupe notes on the tongue. The aroma has a touch of the classic German petrol and minerality as well. This Riesling is perfectly balanced with a delicate intensity and lingering fruit-filled finish.
