2015 Nicholas Vineyard Estate Riesling

22.00

Released on May 1st 2016, our inaugural vintage of Estate Riesling is dry with an explosion of flavors and textures. On the nose the wine offers aromas of guava, pear and orange-citrus along with hints of limeberry and honey. On the palate the wine is rich and lush with nuances of apricot and mango, supported by a burst of lemon zest and racy acidity. 42% of this Riesling was put into once filled French Oak barrels influencing a creamy softness and a touch of smoked honey in the long and delicate finish.
