Sweet, friendly, and oh so delicious. Think juicy white peach with crisp citrus notes. The perfect pair for those fire breathing dishes.
|Wine maker notes|
|We sourced the grapes for our Riesling from select vineyards along the California coast, primarily in Paso Robles and Mendocino. Influenced by the chilly breezes and prevalent fog from the Pacific, the grapes develop rich stone-fruit flavors while preserving their natural acidity and delicate aromas. Our Snap Dragon Riesling was crafted with attention to balance and style. We fermented the fruit in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. This process lengthened fermentation, slowly extracting nuances and keeping flavors bright and lively. We arrested fermentation right before the wine was dry, imparting a round, full-bodied sweetness. Just prior to bottling, we added a dollop of Gewurztraminer, which complements the Riesling with its effusive aromatics.|
|Serve chilled with spicy Asian foods or seafood.|
|Legend has it . . . long ago, a farmer befriended a dragon using the creature to guard his crops from raiding poachers. Flying overhead, the dragon would snap its jaws, causing thieves to flee empty handed. Upon the dragonís demise, the farmer planted a vine over its majestic body, which in time grew into a vineyard. Each harvest, the spirit of the dragon lives on, inspiring the creation of these delicious wines!|
