When Fess Parker was cast in the roll of Davy Crockett in the mid-1950’s, it caused an international sensation and changed his life forever. So too did the purchase of 714 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley change the course of the Parker family’s history. Realizing the potential of Santa Barbara County as a premium grape-growing region, Fess and his son, Eli, originally set out in 1989 to plant a small vineyard and sell fruit to local producers. But, as Fess’ daughter, Ashley explains, “ Fess is from Texas, so he can’t do anything small. “The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard now farms almost 700 acres on four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.

Usually I prefer dry Rieslings, but this bottle had fantastic bright fruit with notes of lychee, lemon and honeysuckle. The acid cuts through nicely making it perfectly balanced. Definitely German in style, but California fruit allows this wine to express its terroir accurately. Yum!!

Medium-bodied, with round ripe apple, melon and peach flavors that have spice, mineral and floral accents and juicy acidity. Drink now.

This Riesling is well balanced, off-dry in style, and sure to delight the senses for a refreshing experience. On the nose, floral hints of honeysuckle abound with notes of orange peel, allspice and lychee nut. With its refreshing acidity, flavors of peaches, honey, apricot and pineapple shine through on the palate.

While this is a slightly off-dry wine, it retains a bright, crisp acidity, and is perfectly matched to a wide array of foods. The aromatics and flavor profile are exotic and inviting, with mysterious notes of Lychee nut, white peach and citrus on the nose and mouth. This wine pairs seamlessly with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, and is also the ideal sipping wine.

Wine Tasting NotesThis off-dry White Riesling displays prominent peach, floral, apricot and pineapple elements. It is not a dessert wine but, rather, a semi-sweet (3.5% residual sugar) white wine with a balanced, bracing acidity to be enjoyed with a wide array of foods. Some suggested pairings are with Asian dishes, spicier foods, Summer salads, chilled soups, cheeses, fruits and fruit based desserts. Best served slightly chilled.
