Noble Select Riesling Magdalena Vineyard 2013

The final, 100% botrytis picks from our Magdalena Vineyard evince the structure, topicality, and mouth-coating waxiness we associate with that site’s other Riesling picks. At the extreme sugar concentration achieved with  additional hangtime, the Noble Select picks from this site are spice-rich and acid-driven.

A citrus flower and ginger nose open for densely packed flavors of yellow apple crumble and mango puree. 

This wine will cellar comfortably for decades. To enjoy now we recommend cheese & charcuterie plates, spicy pork rillette, and peach pie.
