The Lookout Riesling

The Lookout Riesling

Our Riesling is always about the interplay between sweet and sour, and the 2017 vintage is no exception. Its residual sugar is actually quite high, but you’d never know it because the level of acidity is as well. So what looks like a sweet wine on paper is anything but, and the sugar provides a roundness to the wine rather than a sweetness. We picked early to keep the alcohol levels down, and the end result is a round and rich, yet crisp and refreshing wine. The 2017 Riesling is a blend of estate grown fruit from Block 8, and hand-sourced fruit from long-time friends of the family at Mannhardt Vineyard.
