External Reviews for Arrowood Riesling Alexander Valley Select Late Harvest
Our 2005 Late Harvest is very Germanic. The nose is extremely perfumed and loaded with honeysuckle, peaches and apricots. On the palate it is clean, rich and packed with fruit. The great structure keeps this Riesling from being cloying. On the palate the wine is rich, viscous, and lively. The finish is long, silky and incredibly complex. The grapes for our 2005 Late Harvest White Riesling came from Hoot Owl Creek in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. This is a temperate site with cold nights, overcast or foggy mornings and warm afternoons. In 2005 the conditions were perfect for the development of Botrytis allowing us to produce a small quantity of this special bottling. Harvest took place on November 1st. After pressing the grapes, we fermented the juice in 100% stainless steel tanks to preserve the character of the fruit. The wine was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation to retain the natural bouquet of the variety and firm structure needed to support the residual sugar.
