Spellbound Riesling Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes For our newest white wine stainless steel fermentation allows us to capture the essence of California Riesling. Small amounts of Muscat and Chardonnay were used in the blend to enhance the mouth feel and complete the finish. We enjoy the Spellbound Riesling chilled with a vast array of world cuisine. Specifically we recommend our Riesling with spicy Thai Chinese Southwestern and authentic Mexican dishes as well as with the fresh and varied cusine of California and the savory cuisine of Germany. With all the possibilities there are no culinary limits! Winemaker Notes To create the style for our California Spellbound Riesling we visited more than 20 wineries in Germany's famous Rhiengau region. After tasting plenty of their famous trocken (dry) and half-trocken (semi dry) wines we created our California Riesling to honor these wines in an off-dry style with aromas of ripe melon and jasmine complemented by the rich yet crisp flavors of fresh honeycomb and ripe nectarines. Varietal Blend: 76% Riesling 12% Chardonnay 10% Muscat 2% Other Dry Whites Focus Viticultural Areas: California Fermentation: Stainless Steel Aging: Stainless Steel Titratable Acid: .68 g/100ml pH: 3.30 Alcohol: 12.5%

The Spellbound Story “Where are those delicious wines we can drink everyday?” We hear this from our friends all the time, and in fact, we were guilty of saying it ourselves!

The Spellbound Story “Where are those delicious wines we can drink everyday?” We hear this from our friends all the time, and in fact, we were guilty of saying it ourselves! So we set out to create wines that are as comfortable watching the sunset as they are celebrating the milestones of our lives. We also thought a lot about how we would honor the history and heritage of California and its grape growing regions. Our luscious, barrel aged California Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Old Vine Zinfandel reflect those visions. We hope you sense the same enjoyment and feel that hese are wines that will leave you SPELLBOUND. Read less

Totally worth it for the price :) Typically I find Muscat a turn off even as a blending grape, but in this case it seemed to add to the sweet & sour falvor play that was going on in this reisling. The nose on this guy was like a sugary pear reduction. The taste was all honey dew and McIntosh apple. I'd shell 15 bucks for this sweet treat.
