Nose

The cool vintage and the contribution of the “Spring Block” at 1200’ features delicate aromas of white nectarine and fresh sliced papaya.

Growing Conditions

At Palmaz we are grateful to have a few small parcels on property cool enough to grow this coveted varietal. The 2.17 acre parcel coined “Spring Block” at 1200’ elevation is cast in shadow most of the morning and frost prone, creating the perfect location to express an almost Mosel-style Riesling.

Bottling

Bottled March 2016.

Winemaking

Whole cluster pressed Cold fermented, 45 °F

Food Pairing

This shy but poised to blossom Riesling resonates beautifully with delicate sushi selection such as Negihama or Hamachi Scallion rolls.
