Mokelumne Glen Vineyards Riesling Lodi German Collection 2008

Member Review by StukNlodi:

Meh - I've had better. A bit dry for riesling. Subtle aroma. If you like dry wine, but find Chard too bitter, try this one. I wish they made a late harvest riesling.

Mokelumne Glen Vineyards:
Our family is in its third generation of growing winegrapes. We still keep four old Tokay vines for sentimental value in recognition of what started it all for the Lodi area.

Our family is in its third generation of growing winegrapes. We still keep four old Tokay vines for sentimental value in recognition of what started it all for the Lodi area. All four present family members are involved in grape-growing and winemaking. Our label shows an artist's rendering of our vineyards and the edge of the Glen. We began home winemaking in the mid 1970's and initiated commercial production with the 1998 harvest. We seek to offer consumers a choice of wine varieties and styles that differ somewhat from many on the market today, by offering German and Austrian varieties and wine-making styles. Our viticultural practices include cane pruning (seldom used in the Lodi area) and expanded vertical trellis. We also use a dual irrigation system utilizing the most favorable benefits of both drip and sprinkler. Our efforts to establish a "natural balance" in our fields also include biological controls, a minimum of pesticide use and ground covers. Our winemaking practices include barrel aging techniques which keep the oak from dominating the wine while allowing it to blend with the natural fragrances and flavors, thereby producing approachable wines. Our small production allows us to give individual attention to each barrel. Our stainless steel tanks have been custom built according to our designs and specifications. They include oversized cooling jackets which give us excellent control over fermentation. Our designs also include adjustable capacity tanks which allows us to fit the tanks to the wine rather than the wine to the tanks. Read less
