Riesling Josef Vineyard 2015

The oldest Rieslings in our Josef Vineyard date back to the 1970s. These robust vines, assisted by a warming lake effect and beneficial topography, produce consistently ripe fruit of great flavor and intensity. Increased sugar densities from this rich site enable us to craft Rieslings in the traditional Auslese style. Fresh and lively with medium viscosity and clean finish, the Riesling Josef Vineyard pairs with a variety of full-flavored dishes and will drink with distinction for years to come.

Food Pairing: Lobster, Cream Sauces, Soft Cheeses
