Frisky by nature, a dry Riesling in the traditional style of Alsace or Clare Valley.
A wine to simply enjoy with its lime aromatics against a backdrop of enticing florals. The palate is intense with lime pith flavor, weight, power and a frisky, ultra-dry finish that lingers.
No sweetness here as our Frisky Alsace-style dry Riesling is barrel fermented In neutral French Oak barrels.
Among Bill's favorite white wines are dry Rieslings and two of his favorite places that make Rieslings are Strasbourg in France's Alsace region and Australia's Clare Valley.
When Bill was able to find a Riesling vineyard with a sunny, dry micro climate and shelter provided by Mount Konocti he decided to make Frisky as a dry Riesling, barrel fermented In neutral French Oak barrels.
Our Frisky Riesling vineyard is located in the Kelsey Bench appellation. Originally a pyroclastic lava flow, the Bench is a transition between volcanic mountains and the alluvial flood plain. It has a largely northeastern exposure. rich, red volcanic soils. The evolving watershed has eroded into the fertile blocks of clay and loam soils resulting in swaths of gravel deposits and well-drained soils.
One of the few remaining old Riesling vineyards we acted quickly to obtain this excellent vineyard from which we make our Frisky Alsace-style dry Riesling, barrel fermented In neutral French Oak barrels.
This is a ‘hard rock’ site. The vines struggle to draw nutrients from the soil, so the bunches and berries are small and the fruit flavors lingering, exemplifying how old-rock profiles can contribute to a wine’s character.
Frisky ~ playful and full of energy.
Why "Frisky" ~ The name was submitted by Amina a wine club member because Riesling is a fun and “jumpy” wine that has a lot of energy. Read the whole story here ▶
