FLAVOR AND AROMA NOTES:

Semi-sweet and smooth with flavors of summer stone fruit, honey and a hint of ginger on the palate. This wine is the perfect choice to sip lightly chilled on a sunny summer day. 


PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:

Due to the high acidity and mildly sweet character, this riesling is quite versitile and will pair well with a wide range of food, especially spicey dishes! Try with gruyere or Comte cheeses, crudites with salty whipped feta dip, raw oysters and hot sauce, crab cakes, a spicy Thai green papaya salad, tacos al pastor or for dessert, a Meyer lemon boudin topped with whipped cream. 


VINEYARD NOTES:

Riesling, the famous wine grape varietal of the Alsace and Mosel regions of Germany is well known for its uniquely floral and spicy aromatics. 


WINEMAKER - Kestutis Vizgirda

Kestutis "Gus" Vizgirda believes the secret to good winemaking begins in the vineyard. That's why throughout the growing season you will find him touring the rows of varietals and envisioning the kinds of wines he will produce from the harvest.  For over two decades, Vizgirda has worked at several local wineries, working with some of the Valley's best winemakers to refine his craft. Today, he has developed his own unique approach to making wine and has won gold medals for several of his varietals.

In addition to serving as Wilson Creek's Winemaker, Vizgirda teaches wine classes at Mt. San Jacinto College and San Diego State University Extended Studies campus. He is also a judge at several local and international wine competitions.
