Winemaker Forrest Klaffke Notes
The stylistic vision of this wine is that of the Germanic Rieslings. Crisp, with good acidity, a hint of sweetness and ability to age. The grapes were lightly whole cluster pressed. The must was cold settled and clean juice was racked to another stainless steel tank for fermentation. It was inoculated with two specially selected yeast strains, which promotes high fruit tones along with fruit cocktail aromatics. Fermentation lasted approximately eight weeks at 55 degrees F. The wine was racked shortly after fermentation to preserve fruitiness and bottled after fining.
