The aromas of this lovely wine fully capture the high-toned floral qualities, including jasmine, honeysuckle and rose petal, as well as seductive honeyed peach, apricot and spice scents that endear Riesling to so many wine lovers. On the sleek, beautifully composed palate, concentrated fresh apple, spiced pear and ripe peach flavors lead to a dry, spicy finish with refreshing acidity and minerality that pave the way for the next sip. An ideal aperitif, this "serious" California Riesling also complements sushi and sashimi, lighter fish dishes, roast turkey, spicy Asian cuisines and soft cheeses. - Winery ** Only 4 in Stock **

Riesling is a big deal at Gainey Vineyard. They source it entirely from their own original Home Ranch Vineyard on the eastern edge of Santa Ynez Valley (a warm Region II), where they have grown the varietal since 1984. In fact, Riesling rivals Merlot as the varietal with the most acreage (20 acres) in their vineyard, which is composed of gravelly loam and clay, as well as sandy loam. The 2006 Riesling harvest went well into mid-October, so the grapes were able to ripen slowly and develop distinctive varietal flavors. To that end, winemaker Kirby Anderson whole-cluster pressed the fruit into stainless steel tanks for a three month, cold temperature ferment; the wine was bottled this past May without ever seeing any oak. The aromatics of this wine are very typically floral, along with apple, peach, mineral and honeysuckle. Green apple and lemon-lime are the flavors, with wet stones as a back beat. The residual sugar is .91, which gives the wine a great balance between ripe fruit flavors and sweetness. Not cloying in any way, the RS is an integrated and organic part of the greater whole. But, really, the fresh and zesty flavors are the reason for this wine to exist; the lovely lime, slate, and mineral grace notes on the finish are just an added bargain.

Wine Tasting NotesFlavors of fresh peaches echo the aromatics. Additional fruit flavors are honeydew melon, lemon and limes.
