Bubble Riesling 2020
Bubbles make everything better! In the glass, the pretty pale yellow color charms us with light effervescence.
In the glass, the pretty pale yellow color charms us with light effervescence. Lightly fragrant notes of apple with flavors of Bosc pear upfront fade to a dried apricot and lime finish.
The winter was mild with virtually no bud damage, and April and May were cooler than the long-term average with delayed bud break. Although May and June were very dry, approximately 60% below average, July was warmer than average, so by the end of July, accumulated Growing Degree Days (GDD) were close to average. Even though July rainfall was 20% above average, total rainfall for the growing season was a scant 14.9 inches, almost half of the total long-term average. By the end of October, accumulated GDD were close to the ten-year average. Disease pressure was virtually absent. The cool nights during the fall helped to retain acidity and freshness, while the warm days provided the grapes a sense of ripeness and balance.
BLEND: 100% Riesling
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy a Bellini cocktail by adding peach slices or fresh berries. Pair with your favorite cheeses, prosciutto, warm roasted nuts and fresh fruit, or liven it up with a smorgasbord of sushi.

Sweet, but very enjoyable. A refreshing change to a standard Riesling. A touch drier and we'll have a definite 5. Wish you could ship to NJ.
