Our Cold Creek Vineyard Riesling is made from 30-year-old vines and delivers a ripe, lush style of Riesling with aromas of ripe peaches, dried apricots and spice notes. It displays beautiful fruit intensity with a crisp finish. A warming trend in late July and dry conditions through mid-October were ideal for fruit ripening, returning 2012 to a more “classic” Riesling vintage.
