Tasting Notes
Intense green apple, fresh limes and floral notes supported by a fine line of natural acidity.

The unique aspect of this vineyard makes for a particularly rewarding harvest for our viticulturists. Simes Vineyard has a northern facing slope and it’s soil consists of fine silts and clay leftover from glacial activity; this makes it quite challenging to bear fruit. The vines are forced to dig deeper to get their nutrients, and as a result, they yield smaller grapes of remarkable intensity and concentration. All this lends an incredible brightness and acidity to our Riesling.
