Experience a spectrum of Riesling styles with this Riesling Trio! From Sparkling to Late Harvest, this estate holiday bundle has it all. Each package includes 1 bottle each of our Simplicissimus Sparkling Riesling, Scriptorium Riesling, and Late Harvest Riesling.
The Simplicissimus Sparkling Riesling is clean and crisp with refreshing fruitiness. Lemon curd, pineapple, and green apple notes add a ripeness to this otherwise bone dry wine. A difficult way of saying something simple, Simplicissimus features a hands-off approach and unique fermentation process. Celebrate sparkling wine by enjoying the Simplicissimus as a apéritif, or pair with your next holiday gethering.
The Scriptorium Riesling is alive with citrus notes of freshly squeezed lemons and grapefruit. Softer cantaloupe flavors dance with delicate anise on the palate, leading into a kiwi finish. Kept on its lees to surround and soften the acid structure, Scriptorium shows our textually focused house-style. Pleasingly off-dry, or the German equivalent halbtrocken, this main release Riesling balances natural sugar against traditional variety acidity, giving a wonderful sense of juicy fruit.
Late Harvest translates to Spätlese, which is German for “a special selection of the ripest grapes of the harvest”. This vintage features honeyed fruit and blossom notes open to peach, papaya, and ripe melon on the nose. Grapefruit and tangerine flavors meld into a delicate acid that dances across your tongue on the finish. A slightly fuller-bodied vintage, the 2022 Late
Harvest contains about half of the residual sugar compared to the regional style with a present acid tension—less obviously sweet and striking better balance.
