Noble Select Riesling Josef Vineyard 2013

2013 featured extended hang times across each of our varietals. A cool growing season gave way to a long, warm autumn where sugars climbed gradually and acidities held steady even into our botrytis picks. The Noble Select dessert wines from this vintage offer zestier, citrus blossom aromas with a mouth-coating concentration reminiscent of maple sap.

This wine will cellar for decades. To enjoy it before the 2050s, open with triple cream cheeses, foie gras, or an creamy chocolate dessert.
