  • Winemaker Notes This entry-level Riesling is a Cuvée made from early harvests in our 5 steep-slope vineyards. We believe the success of this wine, our most popular, is a consistent, well-balanced, dry to off-dry wine with pleasant mineral qualities. A fresh, delicate Riesling with a sparkling, balanced acidity and mineral quality.
  • Tasting Notes The Devon Riesling is a cuvee of grapes from our single cru vineyards. It is created as a drier wine with grapes picked during mid-harvest. The 2014 is dry, crisp, clean and delicate with an animating acidity. This balanced Riesling shows a fine minerality with hints of mellow fruit tones and floral notes. A great wine to accompany hearty meals. Drink young.
