Benziger Family Winery Fumé Blanc North Coast 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Wolf Blass:
he Wolf Blass wine style has always been a unique and highly distinguishable one. The core focus is on blending; whether it is within or across varieties, regions and different vineyards. This focussed approach results in lifted vibrant fruit flavours, a soft, rounded palate and well integrated tannins that are the hallmarks of the total Wolf Blass range.

The 2003 Riesling Auslese Urziger Wurzgarten* took considerable aeration to blow off its high levels of SO2. With time, powerful aromas of slate came to the fore, followed by a softly-textured, light to medium-bodied flavor profile of blueberries, pears, blackberries, and apples. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017. RP "Almond and mineral aromas are followed by intense orange Creamsicle and lime notes as this slim, concentrated Riesling glides to its finish. Good, tangy acidity keeps it focused. Drink now through 2022." Wine Spectator, Mar. 31 2005, Bruce Sanderson

A distinctive white whose pastry and apple notes give much pleasure immediately, falling off a little on the finish. Still, it’s delicate and well-balanced. Drink now through 2015.

Aromatically, the 2003 Riesling Auslese Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr is held in check by sulfur. On the palate, however, it reveals a well-focused core of white pepper-laced pears, hints of citrus fruits, and a distinctive note of red cherries that comes to the fore in its extended finish. An outstanding effort, it should be drunk between 2007 and 2017.

Aromatically displaying white flowers and pears, the light to medium-bodied 2003 Riesling Auslese Urziger Wurzgarten is a supple, tangy wine with impressive depth of fruit. Notes of vivacious minerals are intermingled with limes in its satin-textured character. Drink it between 2006 and 2015. RP
