We are thrilled to offering J. Christopher’s Riesling in 2017! This wine has been out of the market for a long time. The Riesling was planted in 1976. Medici Vineyard is dry farmed organic but not certified. The wine fermented in stainless steel until dry (about 0.5% RS). It did not undergo malolactic fermentation.

    Incisive citrus pith and pear skin aromas give way to richer melon and peach with aeration. Nicely concentrated and energetic as well, offering juicy Anjou pear, Meyer lemon and quince flavors and a spicy ginger note. Shows very good clarity and spicy lift on a long, silky finish that echoes the pear and ginger notes.
