Margerum Riesling Santa Rita Hills 2007
2007 Margerum Riesling "Santa Rita Hills" 50 cases producedOur pal Jim Clendenen gave me one ton from his pick at Sanford & Benedict vineyard. Slightly botrytis, we did a few hours of skin contact before pressing and fermenting. We tasted the must daily when it got down to around three brix or so. Once it seemed that there was a sweetness and acid balance we stopped the fermentation. Akin to a Spatlese level German Riesling. Bottled in February but saving it for summer. It is a perfectly refreshing quaff for a hot day poolside. It is low in alcohol. Im a fan and I will drink most of this myself.
We are a small producer of Syrah, a Rhone style blend called M5, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and a few other varietals. Our grapes are purchased from the finest growers in Santa Barbara County. In addition, we are beginning to import a few exceptional wines we have found in our travels to the wine regions of Italy and France.
