2015 Furioso Vineyard 'Late Harvest' Dessert Riesling

2015 Furioso Vineyard 'Late Harvest' Dessert Riesling

from 25.00

Overview / Production Notes : From some of the oldest Riesling vines in Oregon, the 2015 Late Harvest Riesling began with a two-part pick targeting clusters showing high levels of botrytis and dehydration.

Before pressing, the Riesling was foot trod and cold soaked at 38 ̊ for nearly five days. The long soakdrew out the sugars and acids locked in the dehydrated berries. Gentle pressing occurred over a few hours. After two rounds of fining, settling and racking,the juice was pristine with an intense bright gold color and exotic aromatics. Fermentation began one week after picking, proceeding smoothly despite the high acid and sugar. After seven days, desired balance was achieved and fermentation was stopped.

Tasting Note : A rich and densely concentrated dessert wine, our Late Harvest Riesling offers generous flavors ofcandied lemon and ginger. Aromas of lanolin and honey speak to the influence of the Botrytis. Thesubstantially high acid adds balance and lift to the 70 grams of residual sugar.
