2011 Waugh Cellars Riesling
Harvest Date: September 28, 2011
Production: 275 Cases
Another stellar year for the Fazio Riesling vineyard. Being near the coast and protected on the south facing coast line, this gorgeous vineyard is not exposed to high temperatures, but receives many hours of sunlight and cool breezes, which helps maintain the natural acidity in the juice while providing rich fruit flavors.
A 3 month fermentation at a very cold 40 degrees has proven to be a great program for this incredible juice. Fermentation temperatures this cold allow the Riesling aromas to become extremely intense and the mouth feel round and wonderful, which is normally seen in barrel fermented wines.
Another incredible mouth watering Waugh Riesling for you to enjoy all summer long. The entire 3 acre vineyard is finally in full production and we can consistently produce 250 to 300 cases a year. Enjoy!
