Wine maker notes
Exhibiting a wonderful floral aroma with hints of grapefruit and pineapple, our 2007 Riesling is a classic example of what this versatile grape has to offer. Finished slightly sweet, Alba Riesling goes especially well with "Pacific Rim" dishes, seafood or simply for sipping as a delicious aperitif. In 2007, the Riesling grapes reached a higher level of ripeness than we had seen in many years, with high sugars, good fruit condition, and some development of botrytis (“noble rot,”) which dehydrates the grapes, concentrating their sugars and flavors, and adding an amazingly rich complexity to the wine produced from such fruit. These conditions were perfect for a semi-dry style of Riesling. Fermentation was slow and cool, to retain all of the rich, ripe character, with flavors of grapefruit and pineapple. We stopped fermentation at about 10.5% alcohol, leaving approximately .5% residual sugar. The finished wine, while slightly sweet, is well balanced due to the high acidity of the grapes, and has developed a more tropical fruit character of pineapple than in most years.
