Arroyo Grande Valley
2009 Bishop’s Peak Riesling
This wine is no longer available.
This estate grown Riesling has delightful and fruity aromas of white peach, honey, fresh coconut, and jasmine with a hints of flinty mineral. Bright fruit flavors of citrus and peach are balanced with a bright acidity and a long, smooth finish that is just slightly sweet. This wine pairs well with spicy Asian fare and blue cheeses.
The 2009 year began with an exceptionally cold winter which led to some frost damage. Bud break was very even and the remainder of the year was marked by mild temperatures with one unusual heat spike in September. The harvest was small and the quality of the fruit was exceptional with concentrated, intense flavors.
