Late-harvest Riesling

Another first, as far as we are concerned ... this year we left some Riesling behind on the vines, which we finally picked this week in deep midwinter.

The grapes are, as shown, very shriveled and botrytis affected – very sweet and very intense. We only have two bins to show for it, and thus a mere single barrel ( this translates to perhaps 450 half bottles in all).

Dean is ecstatic, and we anticipate a very interesting late harvest riesling (spatlese in German).

The Prop has earmarked 430 of those bottles for his own consumption.
