2016 Riesling, Tussock Jumper
Baby, it’s cold outside. Let’s drink to a reindeer wearing a red jumper!
This Riesling hails from Nierstein in Rheinhessen, Germany. The climate there is dry and warm with soil high in mineral content. These grapes are harvested fully ripe and vinified in stainless steel. Fermented wine is left to lay on the yeast lees longer than usual (this is called aging sur lie) to create a richer, softer, creamy texture.
