2016 Dry Riesling, McFadden Farms Potter Valley - Dashe Cellars
The 2065 vintage was the earliest harvest on record, we were able to pick the fruit at the most optimum time, producing grapes with balance and great acidity. We picked the fruit early in the morning, to keep it cold, and then gently pressed it in our Italian grape press for almost three hours in order to intensify the fruit flavors without extracting any harsh seed tannin.
After pressing, the juice was allowed to settle prior to being racked into a small stainless steel tank. We bottled the wine in mid February after aging it in stainless steel tanks and having it remain on its yeast throughout the entire process. The resulting wine shows a complexity, a beautiful aroma, and a depth of flavor that makes it one of the best we have ever produced.
