This Estate Grown Riverbank Riesling is a completely dry wine with fresh aromatics of pear and honeysuckle that is balanced with a crisp acidity.
Since 1883, five generations of Wente family have handcrafted fine wines that express the very best of their vineyards and winemaking expertise. The Estate Grown Riverbank Riesling is located in the Arroyo Seco appellation which is defined by a unique geological feature called the Arroyo Seco Cone. Composed of soils, water sources, and wind streams that differentiate it from the Salinas Valley and the Monterey Appellation, it was created by the flow of the Arroyo Seco as it spills down from the Santa Lucia Mountains. This funnel-shaped region appears at the edge of steep slopes where the river has cut a deep ravine, forming an imposing riverbank. On the southern edge of this ravine, Riesling flourishes in the deep rocky soils. In making this wine, the grapes were cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain their naturally vibrant flavors and aromatics.
