Margerum Riesling Santa Rita Hills 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Margerum Wine Company:
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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
