Frisky Riesling 2020
Frisky by nature, a dry Riesling with a winemaking focus on the traditional style of Alsace or Clare Valley Dry Rieslings.
Frisky is and fine natural acidity. The aroma hints at fresh cut peaches and flowers with a background of new mown grass.
In the mouth Frisky is medium dry with juicy citrus flavors and showing the tingle of brilliant acidity. There is that hint of mineral you need to find in a dry Riesling but also offers a rich texture from its moderate alcohol tending to be a fuller more unctuous style but still with fine structure and backbone.
Frisky is 100% Riesling from a single vineyard.
Among my favorite white wines are dry Rieslings and two of my favorite places that make Rieslings are Strasbourg in France's Alsace region and Australia's Clare Valley, so when I was able to find a Riesling vineyard with a sunny, dry micro climate and shelter provided by Mount Konocti we decided to make Frisky as a dry Riesling.
