2005 Napa Valley Riesling
 
The grapes for this Napa Valley Johannisberg Riesling were harvested from a hillside vineyard located above the scenic Lake Hennessey.  The whole clusters were delivered to the press by gravity and then gently pressed to tank.  The must was slowly fermented in tank at 45F degrees retaining all of the delicate peach blossom and pineapple aromas of the fruit.  A small amount of botrytis was allowed on a few clusters to add a sweet honey note to the wine.  Fermentation was naturally stopped at 0.8% residual sugar lending to the rich flavors and lush and silky finish but no noticeable sweetness.
