2017 Dry Riesling
2017 was the first vintage since 2009 to be notably below average in temperature during the majority of the growing season. The cooperation of the sun and heat for weeks - after a Labor Day Weekend marked by sweater-weather - ripeness was no longer an issue. A blend predominantly based around a single fermentation from the Lahoma Vineyard GC Block that was distinctly powerful and opulent. To reign in the intense fruit character of this wine, 30% of a Tango Oaks ferment was added to lend a bit of acid structure and filigreed nuances.
The flagship Dry Riesling from Red Newt, our goal is to make a dry Riesling suitable for everyday drinking that also has the interest and complexity to reward aging. A dry riesling that is both savory and fruity, opulent and refreshing; everything we revere in dry Riesling from around the world. Intense and intriguing smoky notes on the nose evolve to grapefruit peel with time, both of which lead to a rich mid-palate that features exotic fruit while still being steely and dry through the finish.
